by Daniel Lattanzio on Oct 16, 2017 2:01:34 PM

When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realize that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives.A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Throughout the ages, the world’s most successful people - entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, business people, etc. have had to face and overcome obstacles.

Truth be told, the practice dates back farther than that, but it is a concept that is important even today, whether we acknowledge it or not!
