At the age of 21 with an 8th grade education and $2000 that started my electrical and mechanical contracting business, I was believing I could do anything or be anything I wanted to be. I began to read every self-help book I could get a hold of. My work consumed me until one day in 1987 when burnout engulfed me like a flash fire.  Before long it started consuming my energy, creativity, positive attitude, love for life, and my vision for the future. Spiraling into a state of depression I had lost touch with myself and my family. I almost took my own life. Through this burnout experience I discovered the need for balance in order to be truly successful in all areas of life. I now share my story and advice with people from all walks of life who want to succeed without burnout. -Ben Kubassek

    1. At the age of 21, I already had come to the point of having triple of those experiences of yours. The rope at the neck was too weak and I felt like a tomato on the ground. Life ended, at that 15, for the third time in my incredible talent to change the World by living any at it. At 5…. i’ve try to die, because my father – as a penalty for something – dressed me as a girl and opened the windows for my friends to laugh at me. I haven’t change, but indeed that thinking left for ever my soul when I first met her, at .. recently, it started and it feels like always on the march of geting there when exactly it gets here. Give peace a chance. That is.
