Dwight D. Eisenhower on What Counts – Quote of the Day – 4/26/16

“What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight – it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” -Dwight D. Eisenhower

As a person who’s always struggled with her not-quite-five-feet-tall stature, I love this metaphor. You don’t have to be big to be tough and/or persistent. All it takes to overcome overwhelming odds against you is a fire that you harness and use to pursue your goals and dreams.

Sure, you might have some disadvantages, but with enough passion and faith, I believe that all obstacles can be overcome. We all have a burning passion for something. What’s your passion? What’s your calling? How much fight do you have in you for that calling?

I feel like I’ve been doing my own calling a disservice lately because I’ve been letting my own inner fire fade in the face of exhaustion and other obstacles. I know better. I can do better. I refuse to let my fight, my fire for writing, burn out. That’s why I’m here, sharing another quote of the day with you.

Heed your calling and God bless y’all!
