B – Believe in yourself and what you can accomplish.

C – Consider things from every angle. Motivation comes from determination.

E – Enjoy your life.

F – Family and friends who support and encourage you.

G – Give more than enough. Don’t settle by doing just enough to get by. Always give more than is expected.

H – Hang on to your dreams. You may not think you are making progress, but dreams motivate you to meet your step-by-step goals.
