Do not be scared of making mistakes

You will learn a lot through making mistakes as mistakes tell you of things which do not work.


Keep moving

Do not let one wrong turn make you think you do not have what it takes to achieve your dreams.



Always remember you can achieve your mission provided you make up your mind to achieve it and Donn King says in the following quote;

“Confidence comes not from knowing you know everything, but from knowing you can handle what comes up.”
