Please refer to the links below which hopefully deal with your question.

Think of a personal circumstance where you have been faced with a life - changing decision. Do you share your problem with others? That's what Ginger Coffey failed to do in The Luck of Ginger Coffey. His attempts to hide his limitations and his subsequent lies to his employers and his family, almost led to disaster.

When faced with an uncertain future it is always a good idea to share your dreams with those around you who can either help you achieve those dreams or help you set more realistic goals. There are often several steps in self- development before a person can fulfill his or her life's ambitions. Self-assessment is the first step. Had Ginger Coffey done that, he may have had a far more successful future.  

Good luck.
