    You shall never beat me to it.

    I will be all over that **** in 10 seconds flat. Before you even turn around I will be hugging the task you desire and I will have befriended it and we will be eating cookies together and it will never leave me for you, that is how fast I am.

    But I'm Not In Charge

    We are all a unit, a single entity comprised of many smaller entities functioning as individual beings in a scheme so grand, we are simply unable to understand or fully grasp the complexity of it all.

    I have always been different.

    This is a quality trait of a Leader. Whats more is a Leader is original in about all their thoughts. Their thoughts will be an example bad or good that will have others take to. A leader is strong, bold and ambitious. Not as in a show but more for progress in plans and goals to...

    It doesn?t matter if others believe you

    can succeed, or that you will succeed. No one can give you the resolution to succeed except yourself. It?s important to stoke those fires regularly, even daily so that you don?t get into the mentality that you can?t succeed or that failure is an option. Remember that we measure...

    I'd Rather Lead Than Follow

    to follow someone that is like being a copy cat or a puppet.  I do things my way on my own terms in my own time frame.  I don't want to be someones puppet.

    The Alpha

    I love to be involved in things that I can control. I'm not controlling or bossy or anything like that, I just am better suited in a position where I can govern something. I hate being told HOW to do something, or being told that I CAN'T do something. I enjoy finding ways that...
