Every block of stone has a statue inside it – Michelangelo

Do you know how many talents are hidden inside of you?

The first time I read the quote,Every block of stone has a statue inside it …”, I only saw it as something for the artists. Over time, however, this has grown to be one of my favorite Inspirational quotes, simply because it reminds us of how it is up to us to find the jewels in everything around us.

In fact, I think every one who is Resilient or is aspiring for Resilience would do well to read this quote, understand it and start applying it to their daily lives.

Of course telling someone to apply self discovery and actually doing it are two different things. And that’s why you’re about to learn how you can make this part of you life.
