these are all your setbacks.
All these disappointments, heartbreaks and sorrows are thorns on your way.
They are hindrances on your way to focusing on your goals.
If you don’t take care, you can quit or give up on your dream.
In life, you may encounter difficulties, problems and disappointments but don’t allow these things to set you back.
Don’t let those things to be your weaknesses.
Let them empower you

When you encounter sickness, stress, depression, failures and disappointments, shout out and say;
you are not my weakness neither are you my hindrance but you are my power.
And because you have come to my life ,
