You know you can achieve what you choose to achieve. You can reach the goals you are most firmly committed to reaching.
Sure, life has been unfair to you and you find yourself at a disadvantage. Even so, you still have the powerful advantage of being able to choose where to focus your time, attention and attitude.
So instead of focusing on the excuses, focus on how you can make the most of the opportunities now in front of you. Instead of focusing on what has gone wrong, focus on creating new and meaningful value.
If you've already tried and failed, now is when you can stop merely trying. Now is when you can take a more positive and proactive approach of knowing you can and doing whatever you must.
Along the most difficult trails you'll find the most spectacularly beautiful scenery. See the richness that's hiding in the challenges, and bring that richness to life.
