Sometimes we get envious on others’ success; we talk foolish, pass comments behind to humiliate, but we never think glories are not set in a day; there are emotions, pains, stiffness involved in the process. A successful person builds with toughness; they gain their strength from nature, absorb it and at last a vigorous sparkle comes out as end result.
