Turning Tragedy into Triumph

Winston Churchill 1931

I certainly don't recommend you do this but here is some interesting trivia about Winston Churchill.

It was December 1931, and while lecturing in the United States, he looked the wrong way and was run over by a New York taxicab. In what may have been the low point of his decade outside the British Cabinet, Winston Churchill was struck by a taxicab late one evening while crossing New York’s Fifth Avenue, barely escaping with his life.

Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he made $5,000, while in the hospital, by writing an article about what it is like to be run over by a car. Now that's what I call turning lemons into lemonade!

Even in serious setbacks, Churchill had an amazing ability to find something encouraging.

Instead of complaining about your setbacks, turn them around and use them to your advantage.

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." - Romans 8:28 NLT
