REFUSE TO LET YOURSELF WALLOW IN SELF-DOUBT. YOU'RE ALIVE TO SUCCEED
Stop comparing yourself and your current problems to your past few failures. They are not the same. You are not the same. Your entire life has been a training ground for you to capture your destiny right now. Stop whining. Go conquer.
Remember, effort make's the different. It's inescapable. Effort is more than "if you pay me more, I will work harder." It is not about cheating yourself out of your potential.
And if you put in effort to look your best, you can be the best version of yourself. When you look your best, the whole world stops and stares for a while.
