For the past couple of years, I have been trying to be this make-believe player, not thinking about the true balance of life itself and the true life that lies within me. It all happened at the very end of summer, when I truly decided to phase out my miserable behaviors and commit to my relationships with my wife, my finances, my spiritual being and my health.

Deciding to focus on the most important things in my life has made me wiser. And I’m proud to say that my wife has made this journey of ours very successful. She is and always will be my longtime, all-star team member. Moreover, I have heard it said that “success depends on the type of woman you let into your life.”

Now I really truly understand what those powerful statement means.

To my beautiful wife: I love you always.
