Steemit, Bitcoin and even the Covid-19 virus to overcome!
Yes, we are all in a battle that is the size of a mountain, or should I say several mountains? A battle for survival.
But here is the thing, how do we face these challenges?
Do we understand that challenges shape our characters?
Do we know that it was the overcoming of all of the previous challenges in our lives that resulted in who we are today?
Follow me in this story!
The real challenge started when we arrived here today!
I love bi-planes and I heard him coming from far off!
But he wasn't coming our way, as this guy challenged his flying skills against the mountain ridges.
One mistake and he would never fly again!
To make matters worse, the clouds became darker!
Fleet footed he danced with that little plane along and over the mountains and they could not touch him.
So the answer for us in our challenges is to stay one or two, or preferably 5 steps ahead when a crisis hits.
Do we run away? Never!!! WE DON'T QUIT EITHER!!!
Here's a great poem about quitting!
By Edgar A. Guest
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low but the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit…
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit!
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many failures turn about
When we might have won had we stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow…
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out…
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
(Edgar A. Guest)
And finally, my favorite photo below!
Now how is this for guts? In a little bi-plane up high among the granite mountain peaks. He looks as tiny as a mosquito, but the peaks can't touch him!
Apologies for the lighting, but all of my photos are unedited and this was far away!
And That's All Folks! Remember, we are not quitters!
We hope that you have enjoyed the story and the pictures.
