This little video clip is just 45 short seconds. Taking the time to see it may be one of the best choices you make today. I know this clip will add fuel to your inner tank.
It’s not about “how hard you are hit” by the things in your life…it’s really not!
It’s about “how hard you can get hit…and keep movin’ forward…”
Take a moment to consider people who’ve been dealt serious challenges in their lives like Helen Keller, Franklin D. Roosevelt, or Wilma Rudolph.
These inspirational people, and countless other not-so-famous ones, overcame the “hits” which life and fate dealt them…and they kept on going, despite it all.
They kept on persevering…and striving to give their best…and attempting to become the best woman or man that they possibly could become…despite being dealt serious physical challenges.
Whether you’re (‘so-called’) young or old…whether the challenges in your life are new ones, or long-standing ones… let the words that are spoken in this video clip sink into your soul. They’re being spoken to you.
Strength to Keep Moving Forward In Life:
One of the things I attempt to do daily to cultivate spiritual strength is to spend a small amount of time in quiet meditation.
I encourage you to do the same.
5 – 15 minutes a day will do just fine; spend longer if you wish, and when you have the time.
And then, learn to “get out of your own way,” as the saying goes….
Because there’s a power and an ‘inner strength’ within you, which is innate to every life form… that wants to keep on living…that wants to keep enjoying the experience of life….that seeks to keep growing…and to keep deepening in character…
These things that I just mentioned by the way, are the things that the phrase “keep moving forward” encompasses, to me.
The two most fulfilling aims you can have in your life are 1. constant personal growth, along with 2. service to others.
We’re here both to receive and to give.
We’re here to receive the good things, as well as the growth experiences, which life has to provide us and offer us…
And we’re here to give back to life as well…to contribute to the lives of others.
That’s the two-fold personal philosophy that I live my life by – I encourage you to adopt it as well.
One final tip – learn to view every so-called problem, difficulty, painful experience, and setback which you encounter in your life…as a “challenge.”
In my vocabulary, the only word I ever use now to label a difficulty is the word “challenge.”
ALL challenges we face in our lives…can serve as MEANS for furthering our personal growth, our level of wisdom, and our maturity…as well as for expanding our capacity for compassion and understanding, which we can then extend in useful service towards others.
I know you’re capable of this. It’s inside you!!

Notes: Helen Keller was deaf and blind, yet she became a respected author, inspirational lecturer, and activist. Wilma Rudolph and Franklin Roosevelt were both markedly stricken by polio; she in childhood and he at age 39. She went on to win three Olympic gold medals and he went on to become a US President.
