"Image is nothing...SELF-IMAGE IS EVERYTHING."
Written in 2007 by Nichol Meredith --- Maryland
To encourage others to focus more on how they feel about and see themselves and use that as "the gauge" for who and where they want to be. Don't let others determine that for you. You control how people perceive you...bigger, better, stronger, smarter. So whatever image you want people to have of you, IMAGINE yourself that way.
