    I first heard about the Stockdale Paradox while working in the NGO sector in the developing world, but I think it's far more applicable to us than anyone else.

    Can well identify with that moblet - the sort of "mindset" is about where I am. Thanks for posting the "Stockdale Paradox" (awful time they had and very brave).

    Wonderful!

    Exactly the mindset we need to survive and succeed with our illness.

    "You must retain faith that you will prevail in the end, regardless of the difficulties" - this sounds like false optimism to me.

    "You must confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be." - this is what I've always believed is the key to success.
