​"I, [your name], promise to NEVER give up on believing in myself and in my dream of becoming whatever it is that I want to be in life.


I understand that there will be people who will tell me that I will not make it, that I cannot do it and that I will never succeed. 


However, I make this promise to myself on this day, that I will continue to believe in myself, and my dream, no matter what!"



If you have made this pledge to yourself to NEVER give up on your dream, congratulations on behalf of everyone who will benefit from your success!
