Take back control of your life. Don't let the weak influence your next move. Let your heart help inspire ways to become great and also a legend in people's lives.

Blaming and pointing fingers at other people will not make you any better. Take the hit, wipe the blood off and elevate your mind into a different world of self-control. Focus on your journey and do not let dark clouds distract you from reaching that light.
