Health Tip –
Firstly, really believe in yourself and your abilities because if you don’t believe in yourself then you’re going to have difficulty having other people follow you. Have the self-confidence.
Secondly, believe in the people around you and the people that you’re meeting. Everybody has skills, so its really about working with the people in your group and helping them rise. When the group rises, everybody rises!
