Every task however small is noble, We can achieve great things only when we do the little things in our daily life with devotion. All wise great sages have taught this maxim. Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Mother St. Ignatius &others were examples of such wisdom! Blessings to All.

Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day-in, day-out. Not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years.

Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place.

In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person. —R. Buckminster Fuller
