Ever feel like the Little Engine That Could when moving towards your goals?

Chugging along, while doing your best to hold on to the dream. Feeling like you're never, ever, ever going to get there.

The top of that mountain just looks so huge sometimes, doesn't it?

What if you could be the Shanghai Transrapid (the fastest train on the planet) instead of the Little Engine That Could? Moving towards your dreams like the Shanghai Transrapid is easy if you have the right strategies.
