Quotes 

“A victim mentality isolates you and keeps you rooted where you are. It’s tough to move, even laterally, with a victim mentality. You cower in a corner, ‘ugh everyone’s against me!’” – Chris Graham

“Every single shortcoming you have can be overcome if you’re willing to put in the work. But, before you even put in the work you have to have the mindset that it can work. If you don’t think it can work, you will sabotage yourself before you ever get any meaningful result.” – Brian Hood
