The former British prime minister has become, owing to his challenging brave and never surrendering attitude, one of the most popular politicians of the whole history. He managed to get the occupied and by war hard proved nation to hold together. Even in the toughest times, he was very persuasive that he was going for a win no matter how bad the circumstances actually were. In 2002, Winston Churchill was named the Greatest Briton of All Time in a poll conducted by the BBC.
“If you’re going through hell, keep going.
“Do you have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
Don’t feel bad for having some haters. Being criticized is actually a sign of some success. If you do anything you will surely have your own critics. It doesn’t actually matter what you do, so feel free to make your own decisions. Otherwise, if you don’t want to be criticised, try staying at home, barricade yourself.
“To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often.”
We all need to change ourselves in order to get better at anything. Because change means progress. If you don’t change yourself how do you want the others to change? How do you want to change the world if you don’t adjust your mindset and alter your own attitude, which is much easier, by the way.
“I never ‘worry’ about action, but only about inaction.”
Don’t be too afraid of changing something. Challenge yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone! That is the only way to move a bit towards becoming a better and stronger person in every single way possible. Don’t hesitate to make that move.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
If you never give up, if you don’t accept that you’ve lost it, you will never become a loser. It’s all about the time! You have to persist on your way and never give it up. You never know when the situation changes. Just be prepared that the odds can be dramatically changed from the worst to the best. Because that’s what life does to the individuals who are strong enough to keep the positive mindset and hard working mentality even despite the circumstances.
“You will never get to the end of the journey if you stop to shy a stone at every dog that barks.”
Remember that at any point in your life when you will try to get out of your comfort zone, you will definitely feel awkward. And that’s completely natural. Don’t try to fight against it. Accepting that by getting yourself into the situations you’ve never been in is crucial for your personal growth. Hunt them in order to not be hunted.
“The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.”
That’s probably the most inspirational quote. Especially in terms of its huge timelessness. This quote is basically tailored for today and the 21st century. Our new age is formed by this principle. Read that at least ten times until it sticks in your head. This is huge!
“You never can tell whether bad luck may not, after all, turn out to be good luck.”
Anything that happens to you is not good neither bad. All the conditions are objectively neutral. You can choose how you perceive them. That’s your ultimate power! I’ve been in many bad looking situations and after I’ve changed my attitude towards them, the things started to get better almost immediately. After all, I guess you all have the times when you thought you’ve made a huge mistake and then the situation completely turned upside down. That’s the thing WC has spoken about.
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
Understanding this is very crucial to developing a truly challenging mindset. The growth mindset you want is based on the perception of the obstacle as the opportunity. If you’re afraid of doing something, try to beat that feeling by doing the same thing! You’ll realize sooner or later that the fear is trying to signalize you the opportunities to get better by overcoming your doubts. And I bet you want to get better then you were yesterday. Honestly, the biggest aim of mine is to become the best version of myself. That is my own path and I will never stop on my journey. It has no end, that’s what I love about it.
“One always measures friendships by how they show up in bad weather.”
You should know that all the people who you like are not the same when found in a crisis. After struggling and undergoing through the tough life exams you will realize who your friends are and possibly who they are not. Remember that everyone is kind when life is easy.
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
You have to continue. That’s the only and ultimate way to get yourself far and to achieve what you have to achieve. Your goals may be unlimited, but you have to work hard for them and persist in your way no matter how long the next step will take.
