    Greetings and Regards
    I believe that when you have a goal in life, then you will fight to achieve that goal. Just like reaching the top of a mountain, everyone sees from the bottom of the mountain. But not everyone reaches the top, and only a few who have survived hardships They reach the top of the mountain. That is why they say that it is difficult to be a hero, it is harder to maintain it than a hero
