The one recipe proven by experience

We have a saying in my home village: "Life works when you make it work." Does it sound cold-hearted, even perhaps a little cynical? After all, you could argue, each person has to deal with his own difficulties and major problems can really bring you down.

Let me bear witness of the fact that major problems will indeed bring you down sooner or later. Rare is the man who travels through life without encountering crushing adversities of one sort or another.

You cannot achieve immunity against life's difficulties, but the best approach for fighting back is purposeful action. Even if you have doubts whether your course of action is the right one, you will at least have already begun to move.

Keep your eyes open and let experience correct your course. Learning from mistakes will progressively improve the sharpness of your vision.

Continuous forward movement is bound to bring you closer to your objectives. For minor or major problems, choose the one recipe proven by experience: relentless action.
