In Memorial to The ‘Iron Lady’

“I fight on. I fight to win.” – Margaret Thatcher

Margaret_ThatcherI chose this quote today because of the power and the conviction that it takes to make such a statement and to commemorate the life of the powerful former prime minister of Britain, Margaret Thatcher. After researching it a bit, I realized that it was said at a very sad point for her. Margaret Thatcher had just gone through an inconclusive first ballot for in 1990 during the leadership election and she was not giving up. Unfortunately, she ended up loosing that election.

While I do not intend to be political in any way, there is no one that can deny Margaret Thatcher her place in history. Those are the reasons I chose to quote her today after her life ended early this morning.

Lesson: This quote is simple enough. It shows that you should always have faith in yourself and push forward; no matter what the outcome.


The hits keep coming!

“It’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard to can get hit and keep moving forward.”  – Rocky Balboa

I have been sitting on this quote from Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” because I really liked it, but had so many great lessons/quotes to share. After the last few days though, the quote came to life and I realized that I needed it just as much as I wanted to teach it.

Hits don’t need to be physical; after this week, I’ve learned they can be verbal, fiscal and motivational.

Lesson: There should be no quit. You’re always going to get hit and knocked back every now and again, but there needs to be something in you that wants to move forward and keep striving for something new.
