🤏"Never stop bettering yourself even if you know you can never reach perfection. But what's wrong with the imperfection after we have bravely tried so hard". This is a deeply motivational message from Ragnarok of Norse mythology. One thing that should be remembered is that Norse Gods didn't fight with a positive attitude.
