I think a person’s mindset is so integral to their success because everything is based in a positive mentality. If from the start you have a negative mentality and you think that the things you want to accomplish are impossible or hard to achieve then you can’t even make a plan to get started on it. One of the principal things i like to consider is that each person should believe in themselves, sometimes you have to leave aside comments from others and be able to focus and believe in yourself.  -Jennifer Gal


The mind comes first then the body. -Laura Berens


Well, it’s easy to just action, but a mindset focused on constant reflection, dedication, focus, and determination is guaranteed to not only see success, but will allow for maintenance and longevity.  -Tameka Gentles


A person’s mindset can make or break them, and can decide whether they are successful in their pursuits or not. Henry Ford once said “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right”. Our success depends on what we think we can accomplish. If we don’t even think we can succeed, we’ve lost the battle already. -Sarah Jane Parker
