I have been this position so many times and I realized that greatness isn’t made for mere men but for courageous men who were bold enough to take steps to achieve success even when they fell several times. This write up wasn’t compiled by me but I thought to share it to encourage anyone who may feel low in spirit and have decided to let life take control instead of the other way round.
