We are called to manage our time, money and resources effectively so that we can effectively make wise choices that will ensure the we get exactly what we've sought after. Don't let others intimidate and discourage you from getting it. Say what you need to say without any care about how others will react to it. Their path is not yours so make sure you take action where it aligns with you and your life. Other people don't get to live your life for you. Live for yourself. Share your accomplishments with others and bring out the best in others by leading by example. Let the past inspire you to do better and prosper than letting the regrets haunt you or the past successes becoming an escape every time things don't work out.
