My guess is, you have already tried to take the short-cuts that looked like they would work - but they didn't. This step is crucial to winning the race.
Please write down those areas that you have fallen short in. We suggest you focus on the areas of sexual shortcomings, both thought and deed, but you might need to write down other areas in which you also manipulated and selfishly used some person. You have three options:
