Success and Courage


This week, on October 26th 1951, wartime leader, Winston Churchill, leader of the UK during World War 2, inventor of the ‘peace sign’, historian, Nobel prize winner for literature, honorary citizen of the US, one of 100 most influential people of the century (Time Magazine)...and a democrat, became prime minister of England.

He was a leader, pioneer and inspiration.

On his inspiration, we celebrate success and courage on and off the mat.

All great things are simple and many can be expressed in a single word – justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.

The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see.

Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities, because it is the quality which guarantees all others.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Difficulties mastered are opportunities won.

This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure.

If you are going through hell, keep going.

It is always wise to look ahead but difficult to look further than you can see.

It is no use saying ‘we are doing our best’ you have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.

Kites rise highest against the wind – not with it.

Never, never, never give up.

Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.

To improve is to change. To be perfect is to change often.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself, the means of inspiration and survival. ~Winston Churchill

Yours in inspiration,
