In this moment there is a need for much courage and much fortitude to say 'no' to hate and vendetta and make gestures of peace.
Don't let others to spoil your inner peace and don't allow yourself to pluck your fortitude by rot raps of anyone...
Prosperity attends the lion-hearted man who exerts himself, while we say, destiny will ensure it. Laying aside destiny, show manly fortitude by thy own strength: if thou endeavour, and thy endeavours fail of success, what crime is there in failing?
The secret to growth is Determination. Be it personal or professional, when you are determined, you are sure to touch the pinnacle of success. Willpower helps resolve all obstacles in your path. With determination, even a physically challenged person can climb a mountain or write the highest examinations. Fortitude will help you grow and reach your highest potential. Domination, on the other hand, sows the seeds of collapse. When you dominate, you do not let others grow. But growth is never sustainable if those around you are not growing with you. Thus, when you dominate, you neither let others grow, nor can you improve yourself. So, do not dominate, be determined instead.
We need leaders of conviction who have diverse constituencies always in mind, who carefully consider the larger contexts of their words and deeds. We need people who aren’t afraid to stand for what they believe in, but who also recognize the privilege of their position. We need leaders who hold themselves accountable to their peers – leaders of great fortitude and great integrity.
