“Success comes to the lowly and to the poorly-talented, but the characteristic of a great person is to triumph over the disasters and panics of human life.” Seneca, On Providence.
As Churchill once remarked, “If you’re going through hell, keep going!”. Persevere. Make sense of what is happening. Find meaning. Orientate yourself to that reality – its ups and downs, snakes and ladders – and get going, putting your best foot forward. No-one ever said it was going to be easy. (Ear-worm alert! Inspiral Carpets song ‘I want you’).
