Life is not about what you couldn’t do so far, it’s about what you can still do

I was being shouted at and had been thrown out of the class a few times in my life. I had been called stupid at times back in  in my early years.  I had been mocked by people who did not believe in my dreams.  And that people of my kind are more known to be playing around and just dream.

However, these did not stop me from chasing after my dreams of wanting to be a scientist and work around the world.

“I see these as blocks that I should climb over. Once I could climb over, it is a step closer to my dream. ” – Eulyn K.

Here, I would like to share with you some of the successful people that we are familiar with. Even they too, do have their own struggles.

“There are many such people who struggled.. Life is not about what you couldn’t do so far, it’s about what you can still do. NEVER GIVE UP!”
