Good advice, WhiteRaven, as usual! I remember a young lad who wanted to get an apprenticeship as a bricklayer.He had worn leg irons since the age of,I think about three years of age. He was told he could never work as a builder with leg irons. Well, one day he left them off, and determined to strengthen his legs. I seem to remember he did a lot of swimming.(It was a long time ago). But I do remember the report and his photograph in the local newspaper when he did indeed become a bricklayer.
As WhiteRaven advises;positive thoughts only! Confidence! Love yourself; not in a vain way,but in the knowledge that you are unique. That there is not another person in the whole world who is exactly like you.
