“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.” –Margaret Thatcher


Welcome to minute with Maxwell. Hi, I'm John. I'm so glad you're with us because during this difficult time I'm giving you strength statements. They’re statements that will maybe give you a little bit more backbone, more courage to face some of the difficulties that we all are surrounded by at this time.

Margaret Thatcher, you talk about a true warrior. You talk about a great leader. She was the prime minister of Great Britain and Margaret Thatcher said, ‘You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.’ She was a wise leader, and she understood that when we go to war against crisis and adversity, we don't get this victory easy. It doesn't come quick. If we win a battle, that doesn't mean we won the war against this adversity. It just means that there's probably another battle coming and another battle coming after that. You see, crisis tests two things in our life. It tests our tenacity and it tests our persistence. You have to understand it's not easy. It's uphill.

There are no easy wins. Recently, I was in Israel and I was with my friend Elliot, who is a major leader in Israel in the area of military strategy. In fact, he took me up to Golan Heights. And while we were talking about battlefields and war and strategy, he said to me, ‘John, if you're fighting the enemy, and if your advance is going too smoothly, to be honest with you, you're not winning that battle. You've run into a trap.’ In other words, they've just let you have it easy so they could surround you. And I just want you to know almost everything easy in life, whether it's in the military or life itself, is probably a trap. Remember what Margaret Thatcher said is true wisdom. You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.

Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
