Today’s Goal: Capture a Dragon
Some days the dragon wins
In my business career I found it important to understand that I am not going to succeed every day. Failures, in some respects, are as important as the wins … if I learn something from the failure.
In my personal life it is also important for me to realize that occasionally the dragon wins. Things do not always go as planned. Life has many unexpected turns and it is what you make of those times that separate you from those being eaten.
This picture has become especially important for me as the symptoms of Kennedy’s Disease progress. The dragon is winning a little more often than I would like these days. Yet, knowing that as long as I keep on fighting I have a chance of winning. It is only when I give up that I truly lose.
And, recently I have revised my goal. I am not just trying to win for me any more, I am also trying to win for my grandchildren and expected great grandchild. Talk about a new and wonderful incentive!
Fortunately, I am not a quitter. Every morning I wake up and thank God that he has blessed me with another day to try to slay the dragon.
Working together …
we will find a treatment or cure
… and end this dragon’s reign forever.
