Uplifting yourself in tough times

Coming from rural middle-class background, tough times are nothing new or first time to me. I persevere by reading books of entrepreneurs, inspire by their success stories on YouTube and listening to pod casts of coaches. I am a quick learner and learn by past mistakes and plan my future through strong decisive nature. I always believed in the quote, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.
