    Motivation helps you get started? I think it’s the fear of missing deadlines or failing exams that gets me started! Or a very large cash reward…now that might ‘motivate’ me!

    I love them all !!! The third one though it really applies to me : I am very grateful to my parents for teaching me that the the fire, the power, the driving force have to come from within. It is nice to have friends to rely on, but when in trouble they tend to dissapear. So it is good to have inside you all you need to pick up the pieces and just go on. This helped me a lot on my journey through this world.Take good care of you! LOVE, Alex xxx
