    I like that quote. It reminded me of how many people out there who believed that there’s nothing they can do with their life and sees destiny as something that’s set into stone.

    I want to challenge that and I’ll accomplish that one day.

    Thanks for the post, Tess.

    What stood out when reading these quotes was how powerful it is to approach the impossible with a sense of wonder, curiosity and openness. Doing so helps us see new possibilities, open our hearts to new ways of being and illuminates a path that is under our feet for us to walk on boldly.

    Hi, a very inspiring and motivating article, I remember Michael Jordan said ” I failed over and over and over in my life; that is why i succeed” . Our attitude towards failing is a hindrance to our own success. Never be afraid, stand still and hang on, keep on moving forward. Have a great day.
