Sebastian Greenwood – How can we train our minds to fight the odds?

Quoting Johann Wolfgang von Goethe the incredibly successful entrepreneur Sebastian Greenwood once said, “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do”.

Staying with these words, it is important that we fight the odds as a test against the times that are trying to hinder us. One should always remember and keep saying it to ones self ‘This too shall Pass’. It means that there is nothing in life that is permanent and change is the only constant. There is nothing, which is permanent or here to stay. Only change is here to stay and every situation, which is there in our life will pass on and we will be faced with a new challenge at every juncture of our lives.

  1. Challenges will build our character, it will make us stronger.

If it does not kill you it only makes you stronger. This is an adage, which has been passed on to use since ancient times. Any challenge, which comes your way will only make you stronger and will build your character, enhance your will power and make you very strong and resilient. Face the odds with steely determination and look at it in the eye. Any challenge is easier to face when faced with courage and determination, only these qualities will make it easier for you to face the challenges. Do not escape from them, otherwise they will haunt you for your entire lives.

  1. There is no running away from challenges

You cannot run from the odds or challenges in your life, the only way to deal with them is to face them with courage. Challenges come in every juncture of our lives and they will not go away just because you are running away from them. You cannot wish them away; similarly it is not possible that you lead a perfect life without any challenges. Accept challenges and that is how you can go through life with ease.
