Winston Churchill’s Prime Spot in History

On May 10, 1940 — nearly eight decades ago — Winston Churchill became the Prime Minister of Great Britain by succeeding Neville Chamberlain. The world was never the same and we all look back with reverence for the hard work and vision of Prime Minister Churchill and his work alongside the Allies to heroically win World War II.

Gary Oldman brilliantly portrayed Winston Churchill in the film ‘Darkest Hour.’ It was a great movie. But there is still nothing better than the real deal himself. And with that introduction, here is a short video with footage from 1940 of Winston Churchill and his then new war cabinet.

Winston Churchill is an excellent example of the right person serving in the right position at the right time. And we are eternally grateful for Winston Churchill, whose tenure as Prime Minister of Great Britain cemented his prime spot in history.

Happy Monday!

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”
–Leo Tolstoy

Inspiration comes from many places, often from locations invisible to the naked eye. That’s the reality of the surreal, wonderland-like adventure of a wandering mind. The only thing we can do is exercise that muscle when it flexes.

On that randomly symphonic note, below is “We Shall Fight” from the soundtrack of ‘Darkest Hour,’ which is a film about Winston Churchill’s defining moment of world history-altering leadership during World War II.

Have patience that the crescendo is coming during the time in the film when Mr. Churchill’s warrior-like speech is needed to raise up an entire nation during its–pardon me for being so obvious–darkest hour.

It’s only Monday, but we too must persevere through our varying struggles set for this week.

(If only with the same kind of liquid diet as Winston Churchill).

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday!

Need inspiration this Monday?

Whether you are dealing with tight deadlines in the office or getting kids ready for school, we can all use some motivation to get us going. Instead of attempting to cater to each person’s individual circumstance, it seems like a better approach to spotlight someone who appeals to a larger audience. And in the case of today’s post, the featured speaker received quite the revival this past year with starring and supporting roles via two highly-acclaimed movies (Dunkirk and Darkest Hour) and a highly-acclaimed show on Netflix (The Crown).

Now go be the master of your fate.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday!

The expression goes “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” Keeping that in mind, does that mean there can be some brief, necessary levity to be discovered deep within or around the most unlikely and darkest hours? According to Winston Churchill/Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour, perhaps.

Life, in its many situations, isn’t always as it appears.

Two fingers thumbs up.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week (with a good laugh).
