“Like success, failure is many things to many people. With positive mental attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on a ladder, and a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order to prepare to try again.” – W. Clement Stone

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” – Helen Keller

“Motivation is fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.” – Stephen R. Covey
Never underestimate yourself!
