Being able to hold your head high in times of temporary defeat would determine your determination for the next attempt.
Strong men and women are not drawn back by temporary setbacks. They understand temporary setbacks are mere obstacles to their much longed for victories. A fight that lies ahead of your bones is that which when fought, would bring your bones to its level. As I would always say, with an eye on the ball like the eye of the dog on a bone, you can never be swayed off focus. You can only relax after you have achieved your aim. Brethren, the beauty of our well-being lies in our strength which always relies on what we have achieved in life. It does not have to be big or measurable. Cherish the little ones that makes you happy and you will be amazed what you have acquired so far.
