Believe in your abilities and your talents; be your own cheerleader. There are plenty of people in this world that will bring you down, steal your talents and leave you empty. Take responsibility for yourself and your needs. Don’t wait for anyone else to prop you up. Don’t send a message out to the world that you are not worthy, a defective product a screw up. You are not a mistake, you have value. Be proud of yourself and others will see it too.
