I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not. 

I will fight against the odds. 

I will sacrifice. 

I am not shackled by fear, insecurity or doubt. 

I feel those emotions–drink them in and then swallow them away to the blackness of hell. 

I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride. 

Pride consumes the weak–kills their heart from within. 

If I fall–I will get up. If I am beaten–I will return. 

I will never stop getting better. I will never give up–ever. 

That is why I succeed.”
