No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but you.
You must choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you on to success.
You must set your own standards.
Nothing meaningful happens by itself. It will all come your way, once you understand that you have to make it come your way, by your own efforts.
Only you can hold yourself back, or stand in your own way. Only you can help yourself.
Not in time, place or circumstances, but in you lies success.
