Winston Churchill – Success & Enthusiasm
“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
One of the biggest problems for many people is coping with failure. In our society, we are taught that failure is a thing to be avoided. It is embarrassment at its finest and we feel a sense of public humiliation at our misfortune. But to many, this way of thinking is deeply flawed. We need to expect to fail from time to time. It happens to all of us, after all. Churchill suffered from bi-polar depression, which is rather debilitating. But in hindsight, many think that it was because of his bipolar disorder that Churchill was spurred on to do so many great things. It is in our failures and weaknesses that success bursts forth. But the drive that keeps us going; that enthusiasm, is what leads us to success.
