Final Thoughts

Here are a few things that I like to live by: *Put yourself in the shoes of others *Never let the fear of failing keep you from doing anything in life *What doesn''''''''t kill you will only make you stronger. It is the pains and hard times that get you farther in life than the good times do * "Shoot for the moon and if you miss then you are still among the stars" *It is not the failure or the success that is the most important thing but rather the path that lead you to that point
