Don't be afraid of ANYTHING Believe my words. You must shut out and lock out the worldly distractions. Ignore the entire world. Ignore the chitchat, the gossip, and the noise in the atmosphere and move forward on your dreams... Fight for your survival Realistically speaking, anything can be conquered in this world, big or small. Every day you catch a glimpse of the small guy escalating to the top of the competition. If they can do it, why can't you? If you think you can, yes you can Pace yourself The race requires training yourself for what lies ahead. A solider doesn't go to battle without training. He has to condition himself for upcoming battle. A teacher can't teach without knowledge. A preacher doesn't preach without his notes. So what makes you think you can run this race successfully without any preparation? True Friends Certainly you don't ever need friends who will tear down your character. Remember, your GREATNESS is weakened, lessened and diminished every time you allow friends or family to discourage, dishearten, dampen, and dispirit you. This is not a true friendship.
