Do you have what it takes to make it to the big leagues?
Every ambitious person asks him or herself the same question -- what will make me successful? What qualities, traits, or habits set those who achieve incredible things apart from those who merely dream about it? Researchers and experts periodically turn out intriguing answers to this question mindset matters hugely, for example, and apparently so does your network.

Do people that are that busy honestly not have time to even think about their SO.
