3) This means that we need to remember the important ways to put into action. 4) Of course, the first thing
to do is to reflect not in thoughtlessness but we need to start to focus and analyze the competition taking
place between the positive and negative limits of our emotions. 5) Eventually we ask, How do we feel
about the challenge? 6) Do we feel hopeless, angry, jealous, worried, inadequate, insecure, and fearful or
do we feel their negative counterparts? 7) Its silly to allow them overrule our outlook in life. 8) We must

determination, courage, perseverance, humility, consciousness, justice, self-confidence, trust, respect,
love and other potent secrets of inner strength and success. 9) We need to be realistic that we need some
