In the first 1/3 of the book, I discuss being completely zombified by motivational speaker "Zig Ziglar".

Zig's advice for success, 1) Make a goal, 2) Put it in writing, 3) Have a deadline for your goal and 4) put leverage against yourself to make sure that if you fail your goal it will be painful.

I lived with this mantra for about the first third of the book, until I failed at all of the goals I set for myself.

Broken and miserable, I chose to "give up hope"
