How Do You Deal With Adversity? 8-1-11

Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune, but great minds rise above them."- Washington Irving

So why is Walter saying I have a little mind? No, I'm not. I'm reminding you that you all have great minds and that you can all rise above misfortune or adversity. Adversity often and only comes when we are moving towards something positive. Like a sailor in rough seas he knows his destination is land but the wind and sea bring adversity. Does he give up and stop steering and driving toward his goal? no, for that would be sure shipwreck! It would also mean NEVER reaching your goal! Rather they fight on, doing all the can to "weather" out the bad weather and endure, knowing eventually they will reach their goal. Do you have the same WINNING mindset? When things don't go your way, as they so often will not, do you get tamed and subdued? Never may that be the case. Rather, may you show yourself to be a GREAT mind and rise above the adversity and stay laser focused on your goal!

Have a great day and a better tomorrow!
