The Drive Against All Odds

We all have heard of Michelangelo Buonarroti, with the painting of the Sistine Chapel and the ‘David’ sculpture being a fine testament to his artistic exuberance. His unforgettable work of sculpting the life-like statue of David has puzzled historians and artists alike to this day. But unbeknownst to most, the task was much more arduous than it appeared.

So, the story goes like this: the maestro was intentionally tasked with erecting this 17ft masterpiece out of a single piece of coarse, unworkable marble which further complicated the venture manifolds. However, instead of engaging in any sort of disagreement, complaint, or ‘artist’s tantrums’ , he silently took upon the task, and now it is for the entire world to see how it turned out.

Convenience is an illusionary haven. Countless people have proved throughout history that no feat is ever possible from the comforts of one’s bubble. Out there, the world is harsh, challenging, and competitive. If a person desires to tread upon the road to accomplishments, they must be instilled with the driving force that does not fade in the face of any hardships. Even the most daunting inferno can be doused with incessant motivation. Armed with the power of belief in oneself, in one’s capabilities, and the task at hand, no success can elude you forever.
