The starting point of all achievement is desire. Without desire there is no heart, without heart there is no will. The will to succeed is in everyone. Some may not have found it yet. Others have and embrace it. You must expect great things from yourself before you can execute them. Ultimately, with self-discipline, all things are possible.
