    Where there is a will there is a way," is an old and true saying. He who resolves upon doing a thing, by that very resolution often scales the barriers to it, and secures its achievement. To think we are able, is almost to be so - to determine upon attainment is frequently attainment itself.

    Courage is often misconstrued as the absence of fear, which it is not. Courage is rather a total mastery of fear. It's the Courage that takes away the fear to make mistakes and deepest fear to fail. Courage is never a roaring beast as pictured many a times - but in my view, it's a wonderful, quiet and tiny singing bird that whispers softly and gently in your ears: "You'll do it again tomorrow! You'll make it happen!" during the darkest moments of life, when you are all alone. Never lose that beautiful and precious singing bird.

  5. Paul Hughes:
