(There's always a positive path forward.)
Once again, I'm veering away from small-scale gold mining to submit another pathway from the self-help book I'm writing titled, Positive Pathways: a Basic Guide to a Better Life. I do believe that what I have to say in this book (a work in progress at present) could help people turn their lives around for the better, but ultimately that's for folks like you to decide. Anyway, here's Pathway 14 from the book. It's lengthier than most posts you're familiar with, but if you read it in full you may come away with some new and potentially valuable conclusions.
