"Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."
-- Henry Ford

          Conquering math is going to build your confidence.  The cool thing is

that you’re soon going to find your new confidence over-flowing into other

areas of your life and  there will be no holding you back! 


6)  A positive attitude

          Have you ever heard the phrase “Bloom where you are planted?”  No? 

OK, I’ll explain.  Pretend that you're a little flower seed, all alone, getting blown

down an old paved road...  You finally fall into a crack on the side of the road. 

It’s not the best place to be…  No seed would want to be there…  Not much

water...  Not much soil...  No one to put some nice, smelly fertilizer on you...

Well, dang it, BLOOM ANYWAY! 


          Of course, it would have been nice to be planted in a beautiful pot with

nutritious soil, just the right amount of water and someone to take care of

you...  But, you got stuck in a crack on the road, so make the most of it! 


          This kind of thing happens a lot in life – more to some than to others. 

Maybe you got ripped off in the parent department…  Maybe you grew up not

having enough food to eat…  Maybe you don’t look like all the pretty people in

the movies (like most of us).  Most people have something that wasn’t really

ideal.  I know that I do.
