Here;s another statistic showing that believe in yourself is more important than knowledge, training or schooling: 20% of the America’s millionaires never set foot in college, and 21 out of 222 American Billionaires never got college diplomas.

Dr. Daniel Amen’s 18/40/60 rule:

When you’re 18, you worry about what everybody is thinking of you; when you are 40 you don’t give a darn about what anybody thinks of u and when you’re 60, you realise nobody’s been thinking of you at all! Surprise Surprise!! Most of the time, nobody’s thinking about you at all! They are too busy worrying about their own lives, and if they are thinking about you at all, they are wondering what you are thinking about them.

Money, cars, houses, boats, attractive spouses, power and fame can all be taken away - sometimes in the blink of an eye. But what can never be taken away is who you have become in the process of achieving your goal. TO achieve a big goal, you are going to have to become a bigger person. You are going to have to develop new skills, new attitudes and new capabilities. You are going to have to stretch yourself, and in doing so, you will be stretched forever.
