Never Give Up! If you fall down 7 times, get back up 8. Never be defeated by your own self-doubts or the doubts others have about your goals. Stay focused on the endgame and play each day as the battle it is in winning the war. You may not win all the battles, but you need to keep fighting. And goal will be reached!!
No equipment needed but a positive attitude. Throw out criticism and never view the glass as half empty. See the good in every situation - because it's there. And learn from your mistakes to plan for correction in the next battle.
