Mottos are something we all need to invest in. A motto, a short expression of a guiding principle, simply could be our saving grace. Have you ever applied to a job and looked at the company’s mission and were turned off? I could ask the same for a club or organization.
Mottos relect our essence. They help inculcate values. Mottos can be personal mantras and a phrase to live by. Mottos can inspire during tough times. In short, mottos remind us what we stand for, and what we wish to pass to the next generation.

Homebody Sandman talks about how going for broke is all about believing in yourself before anybody else does.
