pmp pathThere are times when you will fight like hell and the solutions and dreams you desire do not go your way. Life is difficult; if it weren’t we would not meet challenges and understand how to cope. However it is not the obstacle that is the issue but the manner in which we handle it.

You have choices and it is the path you take that determines your future. Take Roy for example a former abused child. Roy had three choices growing up a) have children and beat on them, b) use drugs or alcohol to fend off the post traumatic affects of the beating or c) mature into a fine business man and never look back. He took the most plausible road possible.

Without sounding trite, our forefathers met tremendous challenges to secure freedom; in some cases your ancestors fought adversity coming to America. And even today, your friends, parents and children fight war, tremendous economic issues and career defeats. But, it is the choices they make.

The choice is yours, which path is right for you, right now?

All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” – Walt Disney

Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.” – Og Mandino
