Explore the value of Ambition
Wilferd A. Peterson
We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.

I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
Henry David Thoreau
