  1. Laughter is so important - it is a valuable tool, especially when you are under pressure. 
  2. No one is going to hand you anything. Goals take hard work to achieve.


  1. Be your authentic self. It is so freeing.
  2. Let negativity go. Decide to let the negativity go and just tap into who you are and what you believe instead.
