Are we moving forward, standing still or going backward?

[dropcap font=”0″]F[/dropcap]ranklin D Roosevelt once brilliantly stated that there are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still. With this in mind, we must be mature enough to recognise that some of the obstacles on the path forward play an important role in our progress.
No matter what system a government practises, problems are unavoidable. Other people are ready to judge us no matter what we do in our daily routines, let alone national issues. It is, however, important to have a sense that not all problems are negative and created out of spite. Some difficulties help us move forward, as long as we find ways to tackle them. Trying to avoid inevitable hardship does not help us overcome it. In fact, doing nothing for fear of further obstacles can be worse than standing still, becoming akin to moving backward.
In choosing a path, it is important for one to eventually be able to look back in confidence at the road travelled, knowing that the right direction was taken. Avoiding hard choices is a sign that the person facing them lacks ambition or initiative.
No man is perfected without trials, in the same way that no gem glitters without friction. It should be noted that great works are mostly the result of perseverance rather than strength. In addition, we must acknowledge the era of “one step back, two steps forward” is long over.
We have undergone a series of commotions and upheavals. We are in a situation in which we have to apply new remedies. Otherwise, we will be left with no choice but to expect new evils. The price of inaction is high.
