The courage not to lose belief in yourself, to value your personality and to stick to your values, because you are the essential ingredient of your future.

The courage to take a step back, to reflect and decide about your future direction. A future that may not be assured by means of one solution. A future, which may require a number of different, dynamic and parallel solutions.
