My long weekend at the Calvert Trust has really given me a lot to think about. On a daily basis I face challenges and sometimes when faced with challenges its easy to give up. But last week at the Calvert Trust I got to try life in a wheelchair and it made me realise that when faced with certain things you simply have no choice but carry on. If we applied that philosophy to everything we face in life, imagine what we COULD achieve…..

So what do you do when face with a challenge?
- Do you give up and go home?
- Do you tackle it for a little while until it gets really difficult and give up? Or
- Do you never give in?
I know I could answer yes to all of these at some stages of my life. So why give up sometimes and not others? The answer is about how badly you want to succeed and if you want to succeed in everything you do, then you have to make yourself want that success.
I find it helps if I grab my notepad and write a list of everything that achieving success will bring me. Depending on what the criteria is, it could be anything from satisfaction of ticking off my to do list right through to earning enough money to take a dream holiday.
Add another column of all the things failure will bring one, and sure enough my first list looks a whole lot better.
I know one thing though, learning to use a wheel chair has really helped me get a better perspective and next time I feel like giving up on something, I’ll think again and question, has life really become that hard?
