Silvercore Podcast Ep. 67: It’s the Plugging Away that will Win You the Day
The Silvercore Podcast
When you’re lost in the Wild, and you’re scared as a child,
And Death looks you bang in the eye,
And you’re sore as a boil, it’s according to Hoyle
To cock your revolver and . . . die.
But the Code of a Man says: “Fight all you can,”
And self-dissolution is barred.
In hunger and woe, oh, it’s easy to blow . . .
It’s the hell-served-for-breakfast that’s hard.
“You’re sick of the game!” Well, now, that’s a shame.
You’re young and you’re brave and you’re bright.
“You’ve had a raw deal!” I know — but don’t squeal,
Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
It’s the plugging away that will win you the day,
So don’t be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit; it’s so easy to quit:
It’s the keeping-your-chin-up that’s hard.
It’s easy to cry that you’re beaten — and die;
It’s easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope’s out of sight —
Why, that’s the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
All broken and beaten and scarred,
Just have one more try — it’s dead easy to die,
It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard.
– Robert Service
Aside from being a powerful poem, it will also make sense in the context of this podcast with Ret. RCMP Emergency Response Team (ERT) Sgt. Major Seb Lavoie @slavccmdr
Seb is a caring, passionate, and driven leader who has spent his life being of service to others. Facing the possibility of a leg amputation, embarking on a new business, and writing a book with his good friend in the process, Seb’s life adventures are still in high gear. Seb doesn’t have a road map, and the path forward isn’t clear, but he knows what he would like to see for himself in his life and is using everything he has learned to fill in the blanks to make his end goal a reality and enjoying the journey in the process.
If you are looking for inspiration, if you have a goal you would like to achieve, if you are facing some life changing decisions, this podcast is for you.
