I’m Such A Loser


So one of my friends is always berating himself. He falls into the trap of comparing himself to others. "I'm such a loser," is a common statement I hear from him.

Get Up!


I grew up watching the Rocky movies.  There's something about watching the underdog prevail that always fires me up.
