Believe in yourself. Back yourself. Never quit.

There is no secret formula.  Just hard work.

    Arrrgh! I *hate* American English with its phrases like “most everyone I know”.

    It should be “almost everyone I know”.

    The same goes for them saying “I could care less”.

    It is “I *couldn’t* care less”.
    You’d think that phrase would be *obvious*.

    Not to Americans, apparently.
