“My key to success is commitment “what is what doing, is worth doing well” If I fail, let me know I failed giving my very best and using all the resources I knew about then, so I won’t feel guilty. What keeps me motivated, my vision. I have a picture in my heart of my desired end as long as that picture is there every other distraction is irrelevant. I rise above it.”
