As individuals we are multi-faceted with unlimited possibilities.
However, it is not uncommon to get caught up in circumstances
unaware of the diamond in the rough we are capable of becoming.
Examples of turning dullness into brilliance are demonstrated in
makeovers as seen on television or YouTube. Most of us have

We see how an ordinary, unpolished individual is transformed
by makeover experts who see the diamond in the rough. The

His attire gave the impression that he didn’t put much effort
into it. His hair and beard were shabby with no clean-cut hairlines.

A diamond is one of the hardest natural minerals known. The word
“diamond” comes from the Greek word that means “unbreakable.”
Your destiny is unbreakable, but it can be ignored. Don’t disregard
what you are meant to do, be, and have. The only way you can be on
track with it is to start polishing it to discover its many facets.
