|Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by Sam Cawthorn:
"Nothing in life stays the same for long. Change and challenge
are constant, although the speed and complexity of change now means we
can expect upheaval every few years."

optional. I knew I had a choice. I could give up, listen to
the doctors who told me I'd never walk again, and wallow in misery and
bitterness. Or I could accept that things had changed and use the
crises to reinvent myself and get better. I chose the latter."
"Forget about trying to recover what used to be. Instead embrace
the crises and use it to bounce forward into a life that is bigger, better
and brighter than ever before."
"Change is like the weather: it's inevitable and in itself is neither
good nor bad - it just is."
"A crisis therefore is a call to action - a situation or event that
demands your attention and forces you to decide how to react and what to
choose for yourself going forward."
"Crises simply force us to look outside our comfort zone and actively
seek opportunities that were probably there the whole time."

"When we need something - say, to achieve a goal or solve a problem
- and that objective becomes imperative then we are often forced to find
"You need to control your focus so you can actively direct it toward
solutions and positively and away from fear and negativity. It's
not always easy but this habit can change your life."
"Adversity and challenges can ignite some of the greatest opportunities
in your life. Sometimes we need a failure to see the new opportunities
that were right in front of us all along."
"Besides, sometimes laughter really is the best medicine."
"Crisis has a powerful way of connecting you to your purpose and re-familiaring
you with your why. Once you share that why through open and honest
communication you will always be held to a higher standard than you would
have been had you stayed silent."
"If you have a growth mindset you see those abilities as the starting point from which to expand and develop through effort, perseverance and practice. They represent the start line, not the finish line, and the real finish will depend on individual effort."
