Nothing Can Come Your Way, Not Even Being Deaf
In this world, there is nothing unachievable. When you think of attaining something with enough grit and determination, you can always conquer the world. All you require is a lot of hard work and perseverance, along with the constant need to achieve something for yourself. This is a fundamental rule that applies to all areas of life. It can be achieving success in sports, or in the work sphere or in your personal life.

History has shown that hard work can do wonders. When a son of a poor farmer can work hard and fight the many odds to become a president of a country; when a poor orphan can become a business tycoon; nothing is impossible.
There are many real life examples in this world, where people have overcome the worst situations in life. Agreed, that all days are not alike. But, when you set your sights into accomplishing something for yourself, things will automatically fall into place. If not, you should make them happen.
