Sometimes tackling problems means getting wet.

“LIFE IS NOT ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS, IT’S ABOUT LEARNING HOW TO DANCE IN THE RAIN” ?

 

What a cracking quote. I saw this recently on my travels and could really relate to it. With a quote like this, its so broad and can mean so many things to so many people, however the line of work I am in it really had some relevance. I also reflected on the many years I have been running my own business and the interesting scenarios that have happened over the time. More often than not indecision and waiting for the thunderstorm to pass is far less comfortable than dancing in the rain.  So you might get a little wet, but you learn by experience.

I thought if I publish  this quote, I had better see who wrote it and stumbled across this article (See Below). Thank you “Mr Anonymous” for such a clever quote.


Quoted From Web Blog By Hillary Depiano

“So, I heard this quote for the first time today and just wasted all this time looking up who said it to attribute it properly. If you are wondering the same thing, let me save you the time.

The short answer is: no one.

This is a popular motivational poster saying and so the original author was some poor chap on staff at whichever poster company decided to print this up first and slap this quote on a picture of lady dancing with a scarf in silhouette or whatever. So technically this quote is “anonymous” as the name of the original author has never been revealed.

Either way, good quote, random poster writer person. I dig it.”
