What is your frame of reference? What telescope, so to speak, is forming or framing your belief?” “You've got it inside you. Step up and be yourself.” “The stuff of life is made from a new purpose.” “Everything in your life has improved by passion and challenge.” “Doubt is a mental habit, and it can, and does, spread to other areas of your life.” “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again.”
