You don't have to prove how good you are. Just be how good
You don't need anyone else's permission to live your dreams.
Give yourself permission, and inspiration, and a sincere
reason, and go for it.
The quality of your life is not determined by what other
people choose to think of you. It is determined by what you
choose to think and do.
Stop wishing for someone to bail you out, or waiting for
someone to give you a break. Give yourself a nudge forward,
then get moving and keep moving.
Consider your good fortune at being able to act on your own
behalf. Delight in the fact that you are responsible for the
way your life unfolds.
Embrace that responsibility and all the good things it makes
possible. Live that responsibility, and make your life live
up to your very best expectations.
