‘I am the master of my fate’

This week the Invictus Games landed in Florida, USA as our first Self-Employment and Enterprise Workshop is being delivered at the Hasler Naval Service Recovery Centre in Plymouth. Supported by the Royal Marines Association the workshop will introduce Wounded, Injured and Sick servicemen and women from the Naval Service to enterprise skills and opportunities that running their own business can offer.

This week the Invictus Games landed in Florida, USA as our first Self-Employment and Enterprise Workshop is being delivered at the Hasler Naval Service Recovery Centre in Plymouth. Supported by the Royal Marines Association the workshop will introduce Wounded, Injured and Sick servicemen and women from the Naval Service to enterprise skills and opportunities that running their own business can offer.

It has been well documented that the attributes of the military have common characteristics in business and sport alike. The Games’ showcase determination, teamwork, and endeavour, likewise applying these characteristics to enterprise and building a successful business can be a source of great self-confidence, an integral part of recovery for Wounded, Injured and Sick servicemen and women.

Congratulations to all those competing in Florida this week we, the X-Forces Team across the United Kingdom, salute your incredible achievements that have taken place along your journey to the start line, and to all those entrepreneurs that have also turned their dreams into reality.

X-Forces has now supported over 50 wounded, injured and sick veterans through our Business Xperience programme supported by Help for Heroes. In July we will also be delivering our first bespoke course for visually impaired and blind veterans in Brighton alongside Blind Veterans UK. We look forward to working with, and supporting more and more, inspiring ex-servicemen and women including those at Hasler this week.

 

Invictus

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.

William Ernest Henley
