He knew that the only person he had to be better than was his former self. He was in competition with no one but himself. “The only demons you have to fight are the ones within you. The ones telling you”You can’t”. He could do it only by silencing his mind. “Sometimes the only thing I need is a mind silencer,” he said gazing himself in the mirror. “I have to make myself proud. I must not give up. I have to change my life because I am responsible for my destiny!”
“Life has no remote control Charles, if you want to change it, stand up and change channel! ” He recalled the words of an old teacher he had at college. He was desperate because he failed his class. After listening to his wise words though he saw things from a different angle. He did his best, tried again and passed the exam! “Hey you!” He said to he reflection in the mirror “What happened to the child you once were? To the child who had dreams and ambitions? Is that child proud of the adult you’ve become? “
Tears started streaming down his cheeks. He knew that those tears would wash away all his fears and insecurities. That was his wake up call. He took his sword and fought hard. He fought and won. His victory was glorious. “I will never doubt you again self. Fall seven times stand up eight” he wrote on a piece of paper. He stood up, walked out of the door and knew his life will never be the same again.
