The first step to anything is belief

No matter what you do, if you want to succeed, you'll have to believe in yourself.

For belief is such a power, which if you can learn to harness, will sail you to the shore through the nastiest storm.

The world is cruel.

People will say "You can't do it." or "You're crazy to be thinking like that.", whenever you try to defy the rules of the ordinary.

Extraordinary is beyond the reach of the ordinary.

Exceptional things are done by people who believe in themselves even when the whole world tosses out their idea like a bubble gum wrapper.

When everyone else thinks you're mad or dumb or weak, it's your belief in your abilities that will keep you going. Your belief will take you to the end of the line.

Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.
— Chris Gardner, Pursuit of Happyness

It's your life, why let anyone else dictate how you should be living it.

You're special, in your own way. Preserve that specialty.

Instead of asking yourself "Can I do it?", say "I can do it.". Period.

Once you've done what you intended to do in the first place, the world will praise you.

Until then, keep calm, believe in yourself and keep hustling because the world will challenge your motives.

Stay true to your dreams.

Once you start believing in your abilities, you've already taken the first step towards your dreams.

You don't have to finish everything you started
