Explore the value of Perseverance
I am happy for who I am, and what I have come to be. I look forward to whatever else that may come with positivity.
I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.
Dr. Leo Buscaglia

Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little coarse, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
