It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.

When you know what you consist of and why you want to make of it, then you can invent yourself.

Ghanaian Proverb

Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment.
