“REMEMBER YOUR GREATNESS

Before you were born,
And were still too tiny for
The human eye to see,
You won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
And yet,
How fast you have forgotten
Your strength,
When your very existence
Is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
A warrior,
One who defied the odds
By surviving the most gruesome
Battle of them all.
And now that you are a giant,
Why do you even doubt victory
Against smaller numbers,
And wider margins?
The only walls that exist,
Are those you have placed in your mind.
And whatever obstacles you conceive,
Exist only because you have forgotten
What you have already
Achieved.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

George Eliot
“I shall do everything it becomes me to do.”

You've got to want something, and know why you want it, or you'll end up giving up too easily.”
Darren Hardy, The Compound Effect: Jumpstart Your Income, Your Life, Your Success
