Citadel of hope

People often lose their hope and think that they and only they are in the depths of unhappiness. But is that true? The answer is -- "no". If one has unswerving faith within then one can change failures to success.

Even if you're suffering from a debilitating illness, embattle that disease with your faith and you will find that you are cured. If medicine plays a 50 percent role in curing your disease the other 50 percent is your faith which cures you. Hope and belief are the elixir and panacea for all ills.

Efface all the defeats of the past. Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. Feel happy about those tiny successes. If you don't feel happy about those then you cannot feel pleasure even when big ones occur.

The finest of timber comes from the slowest growing trees. Victories, also, do not come easily. Tips to great successes are persistence, perseverance and patience. Even a tomfool can accomplish success if he has faith in himself.

Never think that your life is a cup full of misery and that another's life is a cup full of pleasure. Envisage positive things. Isolate negative things. Overpower negative things. Failures are pillars of success.

Nothing is impossible for a willing heart. Nobility and ability should be combined together for greater success. If one is present and the other is absent then it is like a pudding wanting sweet. Have hope within yourself, success is not that distant from you.

A man filled with dejection, disbelief and disappointment is one who is living in a hut. On the other hand a man with hope and unswerving faith is a person living in a Citadel. Which do you prefer?
