Here is a snippet of Deanna J. speaking to young women regarding hope. Regardless of how it looks or the imagery surrounding it you can still find hope if you know where to look. 

You will not be successful if  don't start from a position of strength. How are you talking to yourself? Your team? Having stinking thinking is like shooting yourself in the foot before starting a race! Ask yourself... are you starting from a position of strength?


One of the keys to operating with a #GrowthMindset.
