Synposis: If you knew all the troubles that lay ahead in your journey towards the achievement of your goals, you'd probably never begin, or have serious second thoughts. In a way, nature protects us from knowing this, so that we take the first step. Or else, if there were no one courageous like you, where would the world be? How would the world progress? We would have no civilization, if everyone was like the majority who simply kept their heads down and took the path of least resistance.

So, the few of us, we set out in naivet'e with hopes, dreams and lots of enthusiasm.

We soon realize that in the course of the journey, there are demons, dark nights, mysterious obstacles, and loads of disappointments and failures. However, these are only the test of our faith and grit. They are meant to test the intensity of our desire. To see how badly we want our goal.

Success always has a price. If we keep marching confidently in the direction of our dreams, all these tumultous waves will subside. If we pay the price of success, if we perservere through all those dark hours, they will all fade away to let the rays of dawn and we will reach our goal, unharmed, safe and happy.

Adversity never comes to hurt us. It leaves us unscathed, unharmed. In fact, it leaves us much stronger and abler. It comes to make us stronger and deserving of our goal.

So, climb! Climb despite all the insurmountable obstacles, keep climbing towards your goal. You'll get there.

Often your tasks will be many,
And more than you think you can do.
Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too.
But always remember,
The hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem,
And with Faith in your heart
Start upward
And climb 'til you reach your dream.
For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it,
And you have the faith to believe.
For faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill,
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will.
For faith is a mover of mountains,
There's nothing that God cannot do,
So, start out today with faith in your heart,
And climb 'til your dream comes true!
