fundamentals from Churchill on how to improve your life.
1. Focus on what you are doing right now.
‘It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.’
‘It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.’
2. Be concerned about action.
‘I never worry about action, but only about inaction’
3. Be an optimist.
‘The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.’
‘Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.’
‘I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.’
4. Be persistent. Don’t give up.
‘Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential’
‘If you’re going through hell, keep going.’
5. Don’t lose the enthusiasm.
‘Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.’
6. Remember, most troubles never happen.
‘When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened’
