    Beware of people who seek to control or manipulate you. These “takers” will drain you emotionally by requiring you to keep them happy. Another person’s happiness is not your responsibility, especially if it means sacrificing your own happiness. It is not realistic to think that you can please everyone. When you try, you allow others to control your life.

    You have immeasurable potential.  You can achieve wonderful things. The only limits you must overcome are the limits you place on yourself. You can go as high as your dreams will take you.
