Don’t be afraid.

Defeat is always momentary.

Life can be whatever you make it and getting what you want isn’t always easy.  Many times you will need to fight and work for what you want.  You will have to be smart, creative, determined, courageous and perhaps even ruthless at times.  Don’t stop at the first sign of trouble.
