Most Experts Are Delusional

The truth about most experts and coaches is that they don't practice what they preach and they are just headline readers. I am not claiming I am an expert, but I am a good learner.

I strive to be the top 1% of whatever field that I am into by working hard and by being a good student. I enjoy being in the trenches, getting the neccesary education, doing the work, fighting in the field, and accruing the experiences.

So, through my articles, I share my experiences, my opinions, my mistakes and the lessons. Will I ever become an expert? Only time will tell. 

P.S. The honesty and humor might offend some.
