You were born to succeed!  Determination and dedication, purpose and passion, whole hearted hope and a wish that shines bright enough to lead the way:  That's what people need to achieve their dreams, and you've got them all. Now all you need to do is let them work their magic! Hope and faith are mighty enough to lift you up and carry you forward.  Dream big and doubt small, because you are liked, loved, looked up to- that's you.  (Anonymous)

    I heard a story today that really hit home for me and that was about a cork was put into water and of course it floated.  No matter how hard people would push it to the bottom of the container when letting go it came back to the top. Why? Because it is made of stuff that was not intended to sink. When you say we are born to succeed it reminded me of that story I heard today. We are not make of stuff to stay down we are meant to float so no matter how hard the challenges are deep down we are made of stuff to float or succeed. No matter how many times I disappoint myself I am made of stuff to float!  No matter how many tries it takes to succeed I am made of stuff to float.  I would add to your comments that determination and dedication with purpose and passion are so important but resilience when things get bad are so important too. So let's remember " We are made of stuff to float to the top!"
