Time to Move Forward.

I see people all of the time become victims of their circumstances and life challenges.  When life gets tough or depressing, they adopt a negative perspective and think to themselves about how unfair life is: how they should have been born into better circumstances with more money; or how they should have been given better opportunities; or how things should have happened differently.

Well, the truth of the matter is that life is going to happen – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.  The one true thing that you will always have 100% control over is your response to these events.  When you adopt a positive attitude and always look for the good in any given circumstance – how could you not move forward…?

  • To give credit where credit is due, you have a quotation attributed to ‘unknown’. It’s a line from a poem by Edmund Vance Cooke with the off-putting title of “How Did You Die”:

    Did you tackle that trouble that came your way
    With a resolute heart and cheerful?
    Or hide your face from the light of day
    With a craven soul and fearful?
    Oh, a trouble’s a ton, or a trouble’s an ounce,
    Or a trouble is what you make it,
    And it isn’t the fact that you’re hurt that counts,
    But only how did you take it?

    You are beaten to earth? Well, well, what’s that?
    Come up with a smiling face.
    It’s nothing against you to fall down flat,
    But to lie there — that’s disgrace.
    The harder you’re thrown, why the higher you bounce;
    Be proud of your blackened eye!
    It isn’t the fact that you’re licked that counts,
    It’s how did you fight — and why?

    And though you be done to the death, what then?
    If you battled the best you could,
    If you played your part in the world of men,
    Why, the Critic will call it good.
    Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce,
    And whether he’s slow or spry,
    It isn’t the fact that you’re dead that counts,
    But only how did you die?

    I was always a little perplexed by the last stanza ’til life stepped in with the answer. A student at our college was studying social work. He had been evicted by his folks because he was gay. His apartment was in a rough section of town. One of his elderly neighbours was being robbed of her monthly pension by resident drug dealers. He intervened and was bludgeoned with a broken bottle. His wounds proved fatal. He died walking the talk!

  • I just wanted to let you know I use these quotes as positive thoughts of the day at work. Atleast 80 people hear them each morning.

    Thanks for your motivational quotes!
