“Sit down, spend some quality time with yourself, and discover from the deepest recesses of your heart what is truly important to you. Find it. Hold on to it. Live it. No matter how hard it may be, keep a positive attitude. Don’t take setbacks personally. Look at them as opportunities to see what you’re truly made of. Never lose sight of your objective. But please don’t lose yourself in the process. don’t be too hard on yourself, for you will fall down; yet it is getting up that truly matters. find something, do something, every single day that brings you one step closer to your goal and reward yourself for your valiant efforts, no matter how insignificant they may seem. Be happy within yourself and what you have right now, every single day. Find that solace within yourself, for anything else can only make things better.”
