When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it

Things to Think About

By Pepper de Callier 


"When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." Henry Ford

This is a wonderful application of reframing a situation with a positive attitude. What I get from this quote is the importance of focusing not on your circumstances, but how you can use them to your benefit.  I realize it’s not easy when you’re tired, and the wind is blowing in your face, but try to put this little quote in the back of your mind for the next time you need a little encouragement.  Who knows, you just might take off.

Good luck on your journey
