success and setbacks

To the young people in particular, I hope you will hear this: I have spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I’ve had successes and I’ve had setbacks, sometimes really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. You will have successes and setbacks too. This loss hurts. But please, never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.

As we eagerly approach the end of the year, we cannot forget that wildlife conservation is a never-ending story. Major successes and minor setbacks reveal the continued fight to save species from extinction. Before we ring in the new year, take a look at some of San Diego Zoo Global’s highlights from 2016 to ignite passion for wildlife in the year ahead—and support for the planet and all of its creatures.

And to the young people in particular, I hope you will hear this. I have, as Tim said, spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I have had successes and I have had setbacks. Sometimes really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional public and political careers. You will have successes and setbacks, too. This loss hurts but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.

It is. It is worth it. And so we need―we need you to keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives, and to all the women and especially the young women who put their faith in this campaign and in me, I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.

Now, I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day, someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. And to all the little girl whose are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.

—  Hillary Clinton speaking to the younger generation and young women during her conception speech

I have a lot respect for groups like beast, infinite, b1a4, block b and btob. All of these groups have come from small companies, but have managed to break through and become successful despite all the setbacks that comes from debuting under a small company. Even though they’re not as appreciated internationally, they’ve all been able to establish a solid and dedicated fanbase which are relatively peaceful and welcoming. Not only that, they’ve also made a name for themselves in the industry and are respected by many. Just the fact that they’ve established themselves enough to have comebacks only once a year says so much about their success and achievements! I’m extremely proud.

And to all the young people in particular, I want you to hear this. I’ve spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I’ve had successes and I’ve had setbacks - sometimes, really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your careers. You will have successes and setbacks, too. This loss hurts. But please, please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it. It is - it is worth it. And so we need you keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives.
—  Hillary Rodham Clinton

“ I have spent my entire life fighting for what I believe in.

I’ve had successes and setbacks and sometimes painful ones.

[…] please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it. And so we need — we need you to keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives.

And to all the women, and especially the young women […]  never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.”

“Ho speso tutta la mia vita a lottare per quello in cui credo. Ho incontrato successi e battute d'arresto, alcune volte molto dolorose. […] per favore, non smettete mai di credere che lottare per quel che è giusto ne valga la pena. Abbiamo bisogno- abbiamo bisogno di tenere il passo con le battaglie che intraprendiamo oggi e per il resto della nostra vita.

E a tutte le donne, specialmente alle giovani donne […] non dubitate mai di essere valorose e potenti e meritevoli di ogni occasione e opportunità nel mondo per perseguire e raggiungere i vostri sogni.

Tonight is a good night to watch Legally Blonde !

To be fully motivated to start the new week and achieve what you want. To be the Elle Woods of your life :D !

Even if things are hard, you can’t quit. It’s all part of the game. You wouldn’t enjoy your success if everything was getting handed to you. 

 If you encounter some hard times or setbacks, don’t give up ! You can do it, it will be hard of course but not impossible. The more you focus on why you are doing what you are doing and the amazing results you want, the more you will actually succeed. 

Great things take time and hard work. But it will all be worth it in the end, when all of the pain will be over and you’ll be glad you never gave up. 

Stay strong my friends, you are doing it for a reason and I can’t wait to see you succeed ! 

Horoscope for May 16, 2016
  • Aries: These last few weeks have been good for your equilibrium. It was a question of becoming a bit more involved in life than usual, and showing what you're capable of. Most likely you had a mixture of successes and setbacks, but on the whole, improvements have been steady. You may have noticed that this or that about yourself needs improvement, but isn't that true for everyone?
  • Taurus: It's never very agreeable to have to question oneself, but this is the main objective of today's celestial aspect. You'll soon be launched into new adventures. Take advantage of the energy generated by this planetary configuration to look within and find the source of some of your failings. This isn't an easy exercise, to be sure, but it will do you some good. Just be honest with yourself.
  • Gemini: The great period of meditation that started for you a few weeks ago is now finished. This means that you are going to have to get back into the real world again! You are going to have to test out how the "new and improved" you operates in everyday life. Get ready. You can expect some real changes!
  • Cancer: If you have grievances to voice about your love life, this is the day to speak up. Indeed, anything less than total honesty won't be tolerated today. You can expect to confront the “other," whether mate, friend, or family member, on the basis of truth and righteousness. Know that you'll command their attention! But be careful that the weight of your words doesn't surpass that of your thoughts.
  • Leo: Are you thinking of switching careers, or traveling to the other side of the world? Perhaps you just want to pull a “Greta Garbo” and stay home with the shades drawn tight. A series of small incidents you've recently experienced at work is likely to inspire the most outlandish ideas. It must be that you sense your need for a change of scene.
  • Virgo: You're likely to find people somewhat irritating today. It's as though nothing is good enough and nobody seems to know exactly what he or she wants. You'll reign supreme within this conflict and dissatisfaction. You may even be asked to step in and restore order. If the conflict is on the domestic front, go ahead. But tread carefully if you're asked to take on the role of sheriff!
  • Libra: You may have felt an oppressive mood hanging in the air when you woke up this morning. Unfortunately, that haze of misunderstanding and conflict is likely to last all day. However, it makes this an ideal time to speak up about anything that's bothering you! Don't be shy about going on the warpath today. If you don't, you're likely to be the target of a surprise attack.
  • Scorpio: The mood you're in today is the stuff of which memorable encounters are made. You'll be wary at first, perhaps even somewhat hostile to someone who dares to intrude on your freedom. Then suddenly you'll realize that this person is someone special, intriguing, and definitely out of the ordinary. Finally, you'll see that the qualities they offer just happen to be what you need most right now.
  • Sagittarius: More than ever before, you'll feel as though it's time to take matters into your own hands and build your future. You're fed up with living on hope and putting your happiness off until tomorrow. Your determination will be so strong that you may even surprise yourself. You'll refine your approach and make it more concrete in the coming days. Today is the first day of a new life for you.
  • Capricorn: This is an ideal moment to address once and for all the questions that have been on your mind for the last few weeks. Pay particular attention to questions that touch on your sentimental life. If you're currently involved in unsatisfactory relationships, don't be afraid to leave them behind. If you're fretting about an unanswered request, let it go. No response is forthcoming.
  • Aquarius: Something is coming to an end concerning your lack of confidence in yourself. You've been hesitant to stand in the spotlight for quite a while now, perhaps feeling you weren't quite ready. Well, no more excuses! Ready or not, you're going to have to push forward. The only thing you risk losing is your pride, and that is your most resilient asset.
  • Pisces: It's possible that the last few weeks have allowed you to become a little bit clearer concerning certain questions you have about your vocation. You may even have a little more clarity about your feelings regarding what you think your destiny is. It would now be better for you to stop thinking about such things and let life take over. You're well armed for this!
