Human will is a very powerful force. It shapes our reality and determines our future. There is no problem that is too great for a determined person. However, there is usually more than one solution to a problem. Will, without patience, cool hard logic and adaptive skills would be noting more than a mere wish to act. Patience without the knowledge, sound reason and a will to act is nothing more than waiting for the things to happen. Not to mention that there are problems in life that are beyond our reach, or are simply unsolvable. It is up to us to decide whether we are going to learn something from such problems or not.
We, the humans, are curious creatures. We want to learn, to grow. If you believe that you and I could do so together, know that I believe it too. I am not offering solutions to your problems, I am offering tools that will help you to find them by yourself.
