"There once was a group of climbers who arranged a climbing competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high mountain. A big crowd had gathered around the mountain to see the race and cheer on the contestants...

The race began...Honestly, no-one in crowd really believed that the climbers would reach the top of the mountain. You heard statements such as:

"Oh, WAY too difficult!!"

"They will NEVER make it to the top".

"Not a chance that they will succeed."

"The mountain is too high!"

The climbers began collapsing. One by one, except for those who in a fresh tempo were climbing higher and higher...

The crowd continued to yell

"It is too difficult!!!"

"No one will make it!"

More climbers got tired and gave up...But ONE continued higher and higher and higher. This one wouldn't give up!

At the end, everyone else had given up climbing the mountain. Except for the one who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

THEN all of the other climbers naturally wanted to know how this one had managed to do it? They asked how the one who succeeded had found the strength to reach the goal?

It turned out that the winner was deaf."

It's true you see, that with determination, self-belief and hard work you can achieve things that others believe to be impossible... and don't listen to the voices that say it's impossible.
