Dear Atria, people who succeed in life are not necessary very lucky or extremely gifted. When you read biographies of some very successful people you will learn that many of them actually failed many times before they succeeded. Often the secret to their success is persistence, ability to get up after a fall and try again and again. Never give up on something that is important to you, every failure brings you one step closer to the success. You will learn something new from each of your failed efforts. Failure is a necessary part of the journey, but it’s never the end, until you make your dreams come true. All of the hard work you have invested in yourself will pay off in the long run, so don't give up. I won't.
I am your dad Atria.
