3 Biggest Things You Learned During Your Transformation?
- Anything is possible.
- Believe in yourself.
- And don't forget to give back.
Doing it for yourself, don't do it for anyone else. Also beware that you will lose a lot of friends along the way. Not everyone will love to see to to make this change.
Always believe in yourself. Just because doctors told you that you wouldn't be able to make a comeback doesn't mean you can't. I hope my story proves that.
