Anchors or Catapults?


“Obstacles can either be binding or freeing.

It all depends upon our attitude toward them.

We can either view them as anchors or catapults.”

Alan A. Malizia, a Contagious Optimism coauthor

I got this in my email over the weekend and I just had to share it!   Alan comments on my blog sometimes and I just loved this quote and how it made me think.  So I thought I’d pass it along to you!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Cheers to a beautiful, loving, sweet, productive, happy and healthy week ahead for us all!  Catapult away!!

Shine On!

  1. Yvonne I really needed this one today as i wait to have tests and have been told to rest. I first became so frustrated that Im too tired to do anything, then sadness and now Im thinking what am I able to do? Its a funny cycle and I am not good at resting. But all things happen for a reason. Hope your week is wonderful.

  2. Very true. I have a piece of stone in my room that I see every morning. Written on that stone is “Attitude is everything”. Simple but profound. This is another version of it.
