“In 1975 I joined the United States Marine Corp (USMC) as a young man with little or no direction or goals. I had no intention of joining the USMC but rather the Army National Guard, Army, Air Force or Navy, but did not have a High school diploma at the time, a requirement for all except the USMC. In 11 weeks my whole view of the world changed and I became a believer that I could do anything I set my mind to. The USMC builds and shapes a Marine’s character, confidence and willingness to rise to any challenge. The USMC changed my life in many ways and gave me the strength and knowledge to always continue to advance this has at times, not been an easy conviction to maintain and never retreat.”

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.Mark Caine
People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.Tony Robbins
