That’s it. That’s all you need to do. Then customize a strategy, plan, action, steps, et cetera that will allow you to gain entrance to your house, with your custom key. In my analogy, the key is your goals and aspirations. What you desire to accomplish with the house being your life.

Using the key concept, you have to fabricate a custom key to enter the house of your life. My key and your key are both keys, but that is where the similarity ends. What…
