A simple daily mantra: it is the courage to continue that counts; this beats confidence every time.

Updated: May 19, 2019

Sometimes we can be overwhelmed with feelings about a particular experience in life, good or bad. This quote from a fine man helps put things in perspective. Life is full of ups and downs. We need to strap ourselves in for the ride.

This is one of the most powerful pieces of text I have read, uttered by a man in a time of significant darkness. When many of his peers doubted him and even he had doubt himself in his own mind.


It makes me shiver when I read it. To embody just a little bit of this spirit daily will create a renewed energy in the times that are more difficult and help you fly in times of strength.


The things that have happened have come to pass and cannot be changed; it’s what we do next and how we respond with our heads held high that matters. Courage beats confidence hands down every time. A good daily mantra methinks.
