The title of this post is a quotation from Winston Churchill.
Great words, those. And not the action that everyone would choose to take. It’s easier to hunker down in a comfy chair for a proper pity party. While there’s nothing wrong with seeking a little empathy, freezing in place is not going to make things any better and certainly won’t generate forward movement.
Winston Churchill was no stranger to overcoming difficulties. Prior to the successful leadership he applied during World War II, he upheld unpopular views on numerous occasions and at least twice believed his political career was over. He fought depression throughout his life. His name for it was the “black dog”.
Overcoming adversity builds resilience. Pick your battles and fight like hell.
