You Believe You Can Do Anything
Your upbringing made you believe that you can do anything! You had a very supportive childhood where you were told that there was no limit on what you could achieve. Because of that support, you now believe that you can do anything you set your mind to and that you're worthy of a great life. Go thank your parents for doing right by you!
