Throughout the N.O.V.A. program, I have learned that I am a car that drives on different paths.  To fuel that car, I need to put in good fuel.  Positive fuel.  I know that is the only way to reach my goals and to get to my Path of Excellence.  The N.O.V.A. has changed my perspective on life itself.  It’s helped me discover who I truly can become with the right, positive, hero mindset.  It has helped me to know values, as I’ve never thought of them before.  With all of the lessons in N.O.V.A. it has truly changed my life.  I realized who I could be and how to be.  It helped me know my values.  It has made me so much happier.  With N.O.V.A., I was able to resolve many issues going on in my life.  I am much more confident with myself, and I have heard of others noticing a happier me.  All of the lessons in N.O.V.A. I will definitely take advantage of because to me, N.O.V.A. is an opportunity.  I will use the lessons, and I know without them, I can’t find my path to Excellence and I’ll be lost.  N.O.V.A. has made me so much happier.  I now know my life goals, my hopes, and my dreams of cruising on the successful Path of Excellence.  I’ve learned to avoid anything that makes me uncomfortable, or just doesn’t feel right, even tiny examples.  For instance, if it doesn’t feel right with a group of friends, I take a break and STS, study the situation.  When I stay away from that, I will be so much happier.  I am so very thankful for N.O.V.A. and without it, I can’t even imagine how miserable I could be.  I know that by putting good positive fuel in, I’ll get good positive outcomes in my car of life to riding on the Path of Excellence.
