When I was 13 or 14 years old, my mother came into my room with a book that she had purchased for me. The title of the book was “Taming Your Gremlin” by Rick Carson. I remember the book, not because I actually read it, but because of the title. I remember thinking that my mother was crazy. I did not have something in me and I certainly did not ‘get in my own way’ towards success. I was a figure skater who needed to perform day in and day out if I wanted to get to the top.
