Phillips Brooks-“Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to
your tasks”…pray for courage to overcome setbacks and continue without looking back; at opportunities missed; they always come back in another form to those who don’t quit; so maximize your inbuilt capacity to approximate perfection, so that your reward would give you maximum satisfaction; rise now, you are born to rule; don’t doubt, you have it in you!
