STRONGER THAN YOU SEEM
“Sometimes our best is simply not enough. We have to do what is required.” – Sir Winston Churchill
Sometimes we have to dig deeper within ourselves to find that like Winnie the Pooh was told by Christopher Robin “You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think!” Our perception of what is our best is inadequate; we are in fact able to do what is required!
Churchill made many inspiring speeches during the Second World
War, which kept the UK population and their allies on course to
defeat the Nazi war machine. And yet Churchill himself knew when
he addressed the House of Commons for the first time as Prime
Minister on the 13th May 1940 that he had “nothing to offer but
blood, toil, tears and sweat.”
He went on to say privately to General Ismay: “Poor people, poor
people. They trust me, and I can give them nothing but disaster
for quite a long time.” He knew that to defeat the enemy the
country had to do better than their best, they had to do what was
required and yet he took on the responsibility of leadership in
that dark hour!
Another Winston, John Winston Lennon said “The thing the
sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the
responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just
gave us a glimpse of the possibility.” Have you reconsidered
the possibilities of your life today and the responsibility you
have to fulfil your destiny?
