    Don't limit yourself.

    Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.

    Refuse..

    Regardless of what throws at me I refuse to ever give up. There will always be obstacles and our job to make sure that they don't get us down. We have one life to live. No sense on worring about what people say or think. My life is my life and I won't quit it.
