3 Value Bombs
1) It is your thoughts that allow whatever you want to be in your life.
2) Top achievers never run away from problems; instead they embrace problems, and learn how to solve them.
3) You’ve got to recognize that if you own it, you can change it. If you want to create something that will make a difference for you, get out of denial, and take full responsibility for everything that is going on with your life.
