we are not products or victims of our circumstances / by Maranie Staab

we are not products or victims of our circumstances. we are our decisions, our actions or inactions and our ability and willingness to be bold, take chances and believe in our dream(s) more than anyone else ever will. 

know yourself and be confident in your ability to make real the life you dream of -- as far as i know we have but one shot. 

studies have shown that the primary differentiator between those who "succeed" and those who don't isn't money, fame or even talent ... it's grit. (just sayin)
