Talent is a gift, but character is a choice.
John C. Maxwell
I never believed I was average, and that alone is a big reason I wasn’t.

Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you’d like to act.
You are essentially who you create yourself to be and all that occurs in your life is the result of your own making.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King Jr.
