So I'm not generally a fan of teenie-bopper music, but part of the lyrics to this song I think are really inspiring... It's a song by Miley Cyrus (yes, Billy Ray's daughter), and the chorus goes something like this:
I'm at the starting line of the rest of my life,
As ready as I've ever been.
I've got the hunger and the stars in my eyes,
The prize is mine to win.
