To rise above

“To succeed it is necessary to accept the world as it is and rise above it.” Michael Korda

I am always impressed by the sheer size of a pelican and how it can muster the strength to take off and fly. Despite its large size, they are deceptively light. This makes them buoyant and they float effortlessly on the water. And although, they may, at times, have trouble taking off from the water’s surface, they persevere, not allowing themselves to get bogged down in the water :).
