Everything Going Against You
"When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." Henry Ford
When everything is going along smoothly, you feel like nothing can stop you.
The true test of success comes when you run up against challenges, or people who put roadblocks in your path. How do you handle them?
Don't let setbacks get you down. Studying successful people will show you that they did not attain their success without first overcoming challenges.
When Beethoven was 26 years old, he started experiencing hearing problems, which later became total deafness. Yet, Beethoven went on to compose some of his greatest works after his hearing loss. He had a strong passion for music, and even though everything seemed to be going against him, he showed tremendous determination to overcome his challenge and fulfil his desire to compose.
