This is the sequel of "A Patzer's Story" where I chronicle the 'rules' in the book and relate my personal experiences.

I often struggle with the realization that my worth is not measured by what other people think about me. It is what I think about myself. While the opinions of others do certainly count, it is my opinion of myself that matters the most.

Humility is something that I don’t have a problem with, because I know that I am far from perfect and I make more than my share of mistakes. However I also make my share of accomplishments.While a lot of these accomplishments and milestones are often not recognized or even minimized, I still accomplished something. I finally have the sense to carry an umbrella, because there is always someone out there who will try to rain on my parade.
