Rules of Life:
  • Don't diminish the value of what you do.

  • Never negotiate from a position of weakness.

  • Always attack an ambush.

  • Focus on what is important in your life, not what is important to others.

  • No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

  • The only habits we can't change, are the ones we can't see.

  • Be the change you wish to see in others.

  • Consider yourself the best in the world, but don't rest on your laurels.

  • God have mercy on a man that doubts what he is sure of.
