Key Quote:

  • “For any of us, when we look at our story, it’s very easy to look at the things that happened to us and say, that’s the exact reason why I can’t make it. Where, I think if you look at it from a different perspective, you always build a skill set, you always build a survival mechanism to get through anything that’s tough. And that mechanism, that skill might just be the thing that makes you more successful than you would have been without it.” – Arel Moodie
