Here are 5 quick things you should remind yourself, when you feel like you are destined to fail.

1. No Competition

There is no competition who can touch you!

If you are focused on quality and trust.

2. Virtues & Values

Virtues lead to good decisions.

Values keep you committed to the road ahead.

3. Always Dive With A Buddy

If you have someone to talk to, call them.

No matter how late it is, or early it is.

If you chose them to be your partner, they won’t mind. That’s why they are there. You would be there for them, too.

4. When All Else Fails

Sometimes, all there is is faith.


5. Mistakes Are Lessons

You Didn't Fail, You Just Made An Error

Every mistake is a lesson that needed to happen, and you are intelligently reminded with each mistake that there are many ways to travel, but only one road home.
