Who's in the driver seat of your life? Ever been the passenger in a car ride? How did that go? Would you make the same decisions as the driver of that car?
"You're the driver of your own life, don't let anyone steal your seat".
Fall seven times, get up eight - Japanese proverb
A winner is just a loser who tried one more time. The only guarantee you have? You can guarantee you won't accomplish your goal if you don't try one more time.
