    Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measures, when things get tough, remember Faith doesn’t get you around the trouble, it gets you through it, no one has ever been given more challengers than they can handle, all the answers lies within oneself. It’s time to get inner searching and find let positivity fill you to overcome whatever storms you may face.

    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measures, when things get tough, remember Faith doesn’t get you around the trouble, it gets you through it, no one has ever been given more challengers than they can handle, all the answers lies within oneself. It’s time to get inner searching and find let positivity fill you to overcome whatever storms you may face.

    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
