It’s been said that when U.S. Marine Chesty Puller found himself surrounded by eight enemy divisions during the Korean War, his response was,
“All right, they are on our left. They are on our right. They’re in front of us. They’re behind us–they can’t get away from us this time!”
In life, obstacles, challenges, problems, and failures are inevitable. How are you going to handle them? Will you give up? Will you allow circumstances to make you miserable? Or are you going to try to make the best of things? Which path you choose depends on your attitude.
There’s an old adage that says: what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
