It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position.

When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.” C. Swindoll
