    One thing is certain, you will achieve more if you can keep this positive focus than by constantly bringing yourself down.

    I am confused about this part "than by". Could you please tell me why there is "by" before constantly?

    You have been asked before to make a note of the source of any text you then quote on this forum. Next time you copy down a quote because you don't understand it, make sure you keep a note of the website and the name of the author.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
