    1. Nice and wonderful write up, we could always make our world, the world a better place and be the change we desire to see in making it better. One don't have to wait till others get it done, and not until one is at the top first before one can get things done. However, following the steps with a right and true mind as stated above, it would surely make life a more beautiful place for you and I. Nevertheless, at times we may feel discouraged or weak about not getting result or uncertainty, but one thing is for sure, we shouldn't fear to fail but we can actually fail to make a turn around success. Cheers!
