An anecdote that one must always remember…

Swami Vivekananda was having an arduous trek in the mighty Himalayas when he found an old man exhausted beyond imagination. He was standing hopelessly at the foot of a steep slope.

The man said to Swamiji in frustration, ‘Sir, how to cross it; I cannot walk anymore; my chest will break.’

Swamiji listened to the old man patiently and then said, ‘Look down at your feet. The road that is under your feet is the road that you have passed over and is the same road that you see before you; it will soon be under your feet.’

These words emboldened the old man to resume his onward trek.

Bottomline- In life, you always have situations when you think it’s impossible to succeed or move forward.

But you need to remind yourself that it is YOU who has walked all the way till this point & it is YOU who has all the strength to move miles ahead as well. It is this belief that will help you succeed, no matter what the odds are.
