Motivational Moment


Julius Caesar had long wished to capture the British. He sailed to the
British Isles, quietly unloaded his troops and supplies, and gave the order
to burn the ships. He then called all of his men together and said, “Now it
is win or perish. We have no choice.” With that single order, he guaranteed
the  success  of  his  campaign. He knew that people who have no other
alternative -- or will accept no other -- always win. If you find yourself
in a situation where victory seems impossible, you may benefit your cause by
developing an alternate course of action. If your objective won’t yield to a
full frontal assault, try an oblique approach. There are very few problems
in  life that are impossible to solve, and few obstacles that will not
eventually give way to a determined, motivated person with a plan that is
flexible enough to cope with changing condition.
