Why not have passion in everything you do? Why not be courageous? Why not have a positive attitude? Why not find beauty in everything? Why not be a leader? A coach? A mentor? Why not do something you’ve never done before? Why not dream big? Why not have conviction, character, value? Why not attack every problem with determination? Why not believe in yourself?
