Persevering In The Face Of Adversities

For every one person who doubts the heights I can accomplish, I shall inversely impress two others convincingly with what I can still pull off despite the limitations that I have to live with. I have learnt not to brood over the inadequacies of my disabilities. Feeling sorry for myself neither did solve nor make the problems go away. I have learnt to adapt. I have learnt not to give in. I have learnt that the bigger the obstacle that I have to surmount the greater the satisfaction when I triumph over it.

  1. Go Peter, a positive attitude will always help in any situation. It’s good to see that you chose to live life looking up and ahead instead of brooding and down. If anything you have done, I am one of those impressed at what heights you have achieved and will achieve. Best of luck and God bless.
