“Your success or failure as a human being is not a matter of luck, circumstance or breaks. It is not who you are or any of the other myths by which people tend to excuse themselves. Successful people have developed an attitude of optimism, positive thought patterns and a vision of themselves succeeding which pulls them toward their dreams and goals.”
