If it is to be,


it's up to me. (By 'me' I mean 'you,' not me).

This is the kind of attitude it takes to be successful. 

You need to believe that, no matter the problem, you can figure it out. Even if you don't know how to do something, be confident that you possess the ability to figure it out. There will always be reasons to come up with excuses, but those who persist and take extreme ownership of the situation always come out on top. 

It's okay to be unfamiliar with something, as long as you remain determined with a promise that you will either learn it, solve it, discover its cause, or find someone who can. 

If it is to be, it's up to me. When something looks like a problem, approach it like an opportunity. Think of it as a challenge. Something to conquer. Then, no longer is it a 'grind' or a drag' but something that stretches you, inspires you, something that can (and should) excite you. 

Success is overcoming a challenge.

If it is to be, it's up to me.
