" Man does not learn anything, if he is not challenged. But if a man is challenged, he shall be rewarded with confidence, optimism, and intelligence. The road to success is not given to man. Man has to earn his way to this road and when he gets there he shall expect the unexpected, and desire the undesirable. When he has earned his way to the road of success he can do nothing but wait, wait to be challenged, and wait to succeed to the next level of success. Life is like a video game, even though you have succeeded there are many more levels to succeed in."
