Churchill on unlocking your potential

Let’s face it – people give up to easily. In today’s society of instant gratification, fewer and fewer have the patience for reaping the rewards of hard grinding toward a goal. Young people today are used to getting almost anything by the push of a button. Yet science tells us that to truly become a master of a skill, you need about 10 000 hours of solid practice. NEVER give up! What you focus your attention on will come into your life with abundance if you only give it time and effort. This is very true for fitness and training. Planned continuous effort will get you to your goals – not a quick fix program.

Winston Churchill is one of my top favorite sources for quotes. After a few bad years in his political career, many considered him to be finished and on the way down. He was just about to quit and give it all up for writing, when the world war broke out. Suddenly, he found himself to be the best suited man to unite the divided Great Britain. With his connections in the army, foreign duty and wide political network, he was the top candidate to leading the country. He experienced his most popular years after the war, and he has said that the war saved his political career.
He is also known for many controversial opinions. For example, he was against women’s right to vote. He motivated this by the quote “we already have enough incompetent voters”.

Life is an adventure! I believe in participating in life - not standing on the side and watching it. Here I will write about all my passions, big and small. Follow my exciting trips around the world as well as my almost normal days at home, wherever it may be at the moment.. If you like inspiration, travel, challenges, training, fashion, self improvement, culture, food and gear - look no further! So to all my stalkers, congratulations! Now you can enjoy watching my life closely at home with your computer, those cold nights with binoculars aimed at my window are finally over. I'll finish my first post by quoting Bilbo (a character in J.R.R Tolkien's The lord of the rings) with a line that ever since I heard it as a child (about 2 years ago) has left a trace in my memory: " It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to"
