especially about yourself. I can tell that throughout the years, there are certain beliefs that
have really helped me:

"There's always a way to turn things around if I'm committed."
"There are no failures in life. As long as I learn anything from something, then I've succeeded."
"God's delays are not God's denials."
"The past does not equal the future."
"In any moment, I can change my entire life by making a decision."
Anthony Robbins

Sometimes the slow ones blame the active for the delay.
Aesop
