Quote of the Day: Winston Churchill: Courage!

Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
- Winston Churchill

Today's quote is another of my favorites. I think in its simplest form of interpretation this quote rings very true.

When we delve in a bit deeper its meaning is amplified.

In this life we tend to focus way too much on the negative and not nearly enough on the positive.

Our society has a sick attachment to kicking people while they're down. As a society we love to watch people squirm,and fail. We love watching other people suffer, because it makes us feel better about our own trials and tribulations.

The problem is, if we would learn to focus on the positive and not the negative, we woldnt need to watch people suffer to feel ebtter about our own pathetic lives. We'd realize that simply waking up in the morning and filling our lungs with oxygen is a success all on its own.

Why must we always dwell on negative, and ignore the positives because they're not good enough.

This quote elicits that as long as we continue to move forward even a failure can bring success.

I know what you're thinking, I'm just blabbering on about things that escape the realm of common sense.

But think about it...

Even when we fail at doing something, we still gain something. Whether it be experience, strength, knowledge, or even just learning to appreciate every small success, we gain something.

We progress forward. As long as we fall forward when we get hit, it still counts as a gain.

Life is far too short, and precious to spend it dwelling on something we could not change.

Lets enjoy life, enjoy every opportunity we are given to succeed or fail. Life is about opportunities, and living.

Let us be the minority who do linger in the bliss of small successes, because at the end ofo ur lives those small succeses will add up to something monumental.

I've watched people pass on from this life at both young and old ages. Some of them lived every minute of every day, and others allowed themselves to be complacent.

Let's not allow ourselves to be complacent. Let's push for something special.

If you do this, I promise you that at the end of your days, there will be a smile on your face as you revisit each and every memory stored in your happy bank.

Love yourself enough to be happy. It's worth it.
