The last chapter to your life has not been written yet. Your past does not need to define your future. It doesn't matter if you failed in the past, or even if you feel like you are failing now. Remember this: What you focus on expands. The people and ideas you surround yourself with matter. Decide what you want with your life, ignore the critics around you, and then begin to take action and put in the work to change the parts of your life you are unhappy with. You must first believe it's possible, then you must put in the work, then you will see amazing things begin to happen.
