As we conclude this week’s blog post, always remember our battle with bipolar disorder is with and in our minds. Our struggle is with our illness, not with other people, places, situations, or other external things. Our goal is to develop the self-discipline to take control of our emotions, minds, and lives. 

The great inspirational speaker, Jim Rohn, said:” Work harder on yourself than anything else.” 

I say,” Work hard on yourself, and everything else falls into place like magic.”

Keep to the path, the hard one. The easy one does not go anywhere.
