SPEECHES ON LEADERSHIP
Barack Obama is quoted as saying, "Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment and it comes with plenty of failure along the way."
He continues to note that "The real test is not whether you avoid this failure...because you won't ... it's whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."
Success and failure, trials and tribulations are inevitable encounters that we will all meet on our journey through life.
But, it is the choices that we make, that will ultimately define us!
So, choose to see each day as a gift and not as an undeniable right, one that is so often so easily taken for granted.
It is this paradigm shift that will start you on the first steps of an amazing experience - an experience of life!
If you aim to cherish each day - everyday - then slowly, but surely, the things that really matter will gently make their way through the noise and the chaos and the frenetic pace of life.
You will start seeing that every challenge is an opportunity for growth and that there really are things worth striving for ... things worth fighting for, despite setbacks and failure.
You'll choose to nurture companionable friendships, you'll choose to forgive transgressions and you'll choose to be more tolerant and accepting.
For it is when you strive to accept, that on most days, most people are doing the best they can - then it opens up the possibility to fall in love, to believe and to have faith in a being greater than yourself and to persevere in reaching for those dreams that may have seemed impossible.
Time marches on ... steadfast, determined and regardless - accept it - and then ... live each day like it were your last.
Embrace the success, persevere through the failures and strive for a life less ordinary - fight for it and insist upon it always.
