Holding Up the Fortress

Dear friend,

Never ever give up, especially when you feel like you back is up against the wall. No matter what, stand your ground.
Remember: An oak tree was once merely an acorn which held it's ground. 
A little miracle awaits the one who keeps going forward even when all hopes seems to be lost.

And as another friend of mine (who sold his Ferrari) often says:
Fear is a portal to the best part of your life. Hug your monsters! Run towards your fears!
And the Book of the Messiah says,
Fear is simply hot air, dressed to look like hell.
Do not give up, especially if you're really scared! Because the whole world NEEDS the genius who innovates beyond limitations and the hero who acts despite fear. You could be both, if only you refuse to give up!

with love
