" Don't doubt yourself if you're not the best; doubt yourself only if you did not do your best."
Written in 2005 by JD Harper --- Georgia
While training to become a firefighter, I realized that there are people much better at this job than I am. Immediately I knew that usually being the best at what I do was not going to happen so instead of doubting myself and my abilities, I decided that as long as I did my best, there was no room for doubt. We hear the saying, "It's not the size of the dog in the fire, but the size of the fire in the dog", a lot around here and that is very true. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!!!

" It is not bad to make mistakes. Mistakes are the best teachers. They teach through practical lessons, which not even the best book can provide. So, learning through mistakes is not merely getting an education but also giving honor to the mistake. This can motivate us to develop a zero error strategy for success."
