The closer you get to reaching the pinnacle the more challenges appear. The challenges are persistent and they appear in the form of discouragement. The discouragement will at times come from those closest to you, those who you look up to and admire. Do not allow it to dissuade you, remind yourself who you are and whose you are. Your greatest cheerleader is you!
Throughout life you will always encounter obstacles but do not allow it to defeat you; refresh your mind, regroup yourself and remember "the race is not for the swift nor the battle for the strong, but for he who endures to the end".
Free your mind and allow "the peace that transcends all understanding" to lead and guide your way.
