Invictus – unconquered, undefeated – no matter what!

master of fate

I saw the movie “Invictus” last night and thought I would share the poem with you today.  Lessons, lessons, lessons.  Go and see the movie for a real lesson on leadership with integrity.  In the meantime, think about this poem and remember ALWAYS that you are the master of your fate and the captain of your soul ….. no matter what!

INVICTUS – William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
