Life offers the strangest twists and turns for some of us. Some of these challenges agonizes you, tortures you and you are left wondering what did you do wrong? Why â€œmeâ€?
Iâ€™ve always considered lifeâ€™s challenges as a way to learn and when I get into a negative mode, I realize that negativity pulls me down further and I need to bounce back from that thinking.
In my journey to date, I haveÂ been inspired by my parents, some of my friends, my family, people whom Iâ€™ve read about or met, books that Iâ€™ve read and some of the movies that Iâ€™ve watched.
I saw the movie â€œ42â€ recently. 42 tells the story ofÂ Jackie RobinsonÂ and, under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey, Robinsonâ€™s signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers to become the first African-American player to break the baseball color barrier. The story focuses mostly on the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers season and somewhat on Robinsonâ€™s 1946 season with the Montreal Royals.
Drag your thoughts away from your troublesâ€¦by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it. â€“ Mark Twain
Jackie Robinson, despite support from Branch Rickey and laterÂ from some of his team members, was not without troubles and hardships. His color was not his choice but he proved that the way he played the game and his attitude was his choice despite the continued abuse he got from society at large.
What appealed to me about the movie was the way he handled his troubles. He was treated unfair several times, but his attitude proved to be his greatest ally.
Hardships and troubles are part of most peopleâ€™s lives. Whether you like it or not you face challenges and a lot of leaders or people whom you have been inspired by the most, have faced many daunting moments.Â How well do you stand the test of Leadership When The Heat Is On?
