Tuesday, December 10, 2019

While you struggle day-in and day-out towards the fulfillment of your hopes and your dreams, know this: “If there is no struggle there is no progress.” When faced with a challenge, sometimes you have to think smarter and adjust course. But often what it takes is sheer determination and perseverance. It never hurts to be reminded that failure and rejection are minor speed bumps on the road to success.
