My Dad always told me this. It's a Winston Churchill quote from a speech he gave at a graduation at Eaton... I think. Hmm I think it is a quote by Master Yoda!
Successful people are not people without life problems. They are people who respond quickly and positively to their problems. They think them through in advance; they anticipate them. And when they can’t, they use the four-step method to resolve whatever difficulty they face. They define the problem clearly. They define the worst possible thing that could happen as a result of the problem.
I don't understand this quote. Everything I've struggled with has become a part of who I am. I wouldn't be the person I am today without struggling with everything that I've struggled with. I think it's absolutely amazing how dealing with and overcoming evil, dark things can truly make a person beautiful. I'm proud that my struggles have become part of my identity.
