Hundreds of thousands have given up trying to scale Everest. “Getting to the top is impossible.”
Hundreds of thousands have lost their jobs. “The job market is dead.”
Hundreds of thousands are dying from the pandemic. “Our very survival is under question.”
Hundreds of thousands have seen salary cuts. “Promotions and bonuses this year – not happening!”
Hundreds of thousands have applied for the scholarship but not got it. “It is not for us mere mortals”.
Vague motherhood statements such as these apparent experiences of the “hundreds of thousands” only serve to demotivate and demoralise.
We are not hundreds of thousands. We each are just one. We just need one job, one chance, one paycheck, one summit.
We must leave no stone unturned in getting what we need.
Forget the stats. Instead, fuel the faith.
