“When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.”
— Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics
Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.

When someone asks, “What do you do?” are you able to express yourself confidently or do you find yourself stumbling to answer? Not because you don’t know, but because you’re afraid to own it. Because the idea of declaring yourself as “something” – a writer, an entrepreneur, a speaker, a professional – makes it all the more real. It puts a label on your work, your hobby, your passions, that sometimes seem impossible to live up to.
