Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
You don't drown by falling in water. You drown by staying there
"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal." ~ Henry Ford
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
"The value of an idea lies in the using of it." ~Thomas Edison
