Big things—and even the small, unnoticeable positive things—happen when you trust yourself and BELIEVE. Sometimes it comes in the form of someone else believing in you first, like a family member, friend, teacher, or co-worker. Other times, it’s simply knowing that you got this. Believing is how goals are reached, rockets are built, and how work gets done. With reverence and respect for efforts made, the rewards go as deep as still water and as high as the sky.
