Wherever you look, you would see a glimpse of the past and a splash of the future. The words you threw at the air yesterday would come back to either hunt or caress your life. We make or mar our future by the actions we took in the past. Some dudes keep shouting that life is not fair but the truth is that the pains we bear and the pains we suffer are as a result of the things we did yesteryears and today. I had this façade that life is unfair to me until I came to the realization that everything that had happened in my life is a reflection of things I dreamt of and the bold hopes I hung on my neck like a gold necklace. The bigger you dreams, the bigger your challenges. Your dreams are a reflection of the challenges that crops up in your life; you have to surmount them with the brave heart and determination of a champion who is unrelenting in his or her pursuit for glory. Yes, better days would spring up from the rubbles of despair and disappointments. Without setbacks, there can be no Eldorado. Everybody wants to be a champion but not everybody is prepared to go through the rigorous routine it entails to wear that crown of glory on your forehead. Just like Tyson Fury, you have to have what it takes to stand up after being knocked down. Fate is as brutal as the killer punches of Deontay Wilder. The only way you can do wonders for yourself is by not staying down after the fall. To fall is human but to rise up and stand on your feet explicitly qualifies you as a champion. Sitting at the top is a reflection of the effort you had put in your life to be where you are. The greatest is not the one who sits on the throne but the one who got beaten and still manage to rise up again from the ashes like a falcon. Your failure is just a reflection of your present circumstance, it is not necessarily a reflection of who you are because you are who you think you are.
