Thought of the Day: Pick Your Battles

Winston Churchill quote

Even though our intended destinations are a part of the vision we have for ourselves, we try to remain grounded, by taking each step of our journey at a time, as the best route to success. But we need to make sure that each step we take in whichever direction we choose is anchored to the bigger picture, because that is what all our hard work will come too. Along our journey we will encounter obstacles, sometimes words, ideas, and beliefs, and other times structures, rules, and restrictions. We need to be careful that we don’t lose sight of that destination and exhaust ourselves by getting caught up in moments that don’t amount to anything and do no favours for us. Do not listen to people’s unkind words or doubt, don’t be weighed down by negativity and the past, and don’t be held back by trying to please everyone or placing your vision second to someone else’s. Save your energy for the battles that matter. Focus on the road ahead of you and focus on your destination. If you want it enough, nothing is standing in your way.

“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks” – Winston Churchill
