Thought for the Day
Just adversity, that’s all it is. You attack it every day. I wake up in the morning and I say 'It's going to be a great day, I cannot fail I can only learn and grow.' I set my attitude and then I attack the day. Whatever happens happens. It doesn’t mean everything good is going to happen, but I can control my attitude about how I'm going to address it and how I'm going to act.
