Spotlight: Words

By Sharon Brown (Sharon) on October 6, 2013

What matters most could be a word or two.


We will all experience disappointments and crushing events somewhere
along the way, setbacks for which there is no "reason"; no one to blame.
It might be a disease; it might be injury; it might be an accident; it
might be losing a loved one; it might be getting swept away in a
political shake up; it might be getting shot down over Vietnam and
thrown into a POW camp for 8 years. What separates people, James
Stockdale taught me, is not the presence or absence of difficulties, but
how they deal with the inevitable difficulties of life.

--Jim Collins, business consultant, author, lecturer
