How will you choose to respond to the challenge before you?

“Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.”

After I had just read  the above quote by Eileen Caddy for the first time, I checked my email and found the following message in which the writer of the message said:

There is one thing that we all have in common. That is…at some point in our life, we will face adversity. It's not a matter of if but…when.

In my 68 years on this earth, I have come to realize that the difference in success or failure is not chance, but choice. Because when adversity strikes, it's not what happens to us, but how we react to what happens that will determine our destiny.

And that's what this inspirational 3 minute movie is all about. The title is Finish Strong. So turn up your speakers and click here. It will make your day!

    Hi Perry, thanks for your inspirational article. Without the past, we wouldn’t be who we are. And, we can choose to use our past information for good or to our detriment. If only I would remember that all the time:-)

    Hi Perry,
    thank you for your article. I agree it is not what happens to us.

    Recently I read a post which mentioned “Response-able”. I think when we consciously live our life we respond out of choice as you put it.

    Much appreciated.
    Love and Joy
