Read the Stockdale paradox

certainly being here on DB - may be your defining moment in life, do not ignore your brutal reality and remember that you will prevail in the end.

Bumping this up for newbies.


Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to.
The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.

Where was it published?

Edited to add: Never mind, found it:
