Quote-A-Day: Day 133

The only person capable of preventing you from being your best is you.

We are both our own worst enemies and our greatest supporters.  By being one and the same, we are the only ones capable of building up our ability to be successful and at the same time, tearing down our chances of making positive impacts on others.

Yes, it is true that others influence us and impact our ability to do the things we believe need to be done.  But, when it all comes down to it, the only person who can prevent (or on the flip side, who can allow) each of us to truly be as successful as possible is ourselves.

For that reason, we need to make sure that we not only always push ourselves to be our very best, but that we don't allow ourselves to get caught up in despair when things don't work out as planned.

We have a responsibility to ourselves and others to always be exemplary.  Since we are the only ones who can truly prevent this from happening, we must make sure that we always keep the end in mind and keep reaching for the stars.

Our communities depend on it.

The good news, of course, is that since we are in control of our own destinies, nobody else can truly prevent us from being who we most want to be.  With that in mind, it is necessary for us to always believe in ourselves, knowing that if we trust in our capabilities, we will be successful.
