They give you the determination to see things through the hard times. To
win at all costs. They also make you a nexus whixh other people will
(unconsciously, or unknowingly) follow. With those kind of convictions and
the determinaiton they bring one man can change the world.

If you don't believe in yourself absolutely, first, how can you throw
yourself into believe absolutely in anything else?

it. Nothing's free, there is a price for everything.
