I’m a huge fan of Winston Churchill. In researching my new book “One Big Thing: Discovering What You Were Born to Do” Churchill was one of the lives I studied. He was a fighter who refused to give up. He came back from defeat to lead the British against the Nazis. He fought depression most of his life. And yet he was an incredible inspiration to millions of people. One of my favorite quotes has a lot to say to all of us:
“To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.”
The questions we have to answer in response are:
1. Are you ready for that moment?
2. If not, what do you have to do to be ready?
