When being strong becomes your only choice....

When life throws insurmountable challenges at you
When it beats you down to your last breath
When pain and suffering become your constant companions
When you know there is only darkness all around you
When all hope seems to have vanished
When people around you choose to become only witnesses to all this
Then being strong becomes your only choice

When you fancy a way filled with wilderness
When you try to travel a less trodden path full of difficulties
When people tell you to abandon it and come to theirs'
When your mind refuses to head to their voices
When suddenly you realize you are all alone
When there are still millions of miles to cover
Then being strong becomes your only choice

In these cases there is only one light
Bring spring to your gait
Time to focus all your might
Fires in your belly to ignite
Train your wings to take the highest flight
This is the only way to fight:

Abandon weakness, not life
Give up tears, not hope
Accept only success, not failure
Move forward, do not stop or cease

By turning adversity on its head
Make your fate give upon you
By shaking your will to fall in line
Make your destiny accept you as its master

In the end you yourself will be surprised
About the stuff you comprise
When being strong becomes your only choice
You become the impenetrable person the world could ever face!

Based on my art work "Adversities are the machines that polish these gems''

(Majority of the people in the world think that obstacles, difficulties, pain and agony are not good for them. On the contrary, I feel, they are the machines that polish the personality of a human being. If a person knows how to learn lessons from them and how to understand the philosophy of life, adversities bring out the best in a human being and make the person very strong and beautiful.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. They are created by the adversities!)

All those individuals who attained greatness, regardless of which walk of life they came from, were the products of difficulty and not of facility. They faced challenges and emerged as superachievers.


  • At times only hand available to wipe your tears will be your own. So be the hero you want in your life.

Imagine this: You're choosing between two job candidates. Both are qualified for the job. One has a perfect resume, all the right schools and internships, while the other ... not so much. Well, human resources executive Regina Hartley suggests: Give the "scrapper" a chance. From personal experience, Hartley knows that people who've overcome difficulty, whose resumes "look like a patchwork quilt," are often the workers with the grit to succeed in our ever-changing workplace. "Choose the underestimated contender," she says, "whose secret weapons are passion and purpose."
