I've just watched the speech by Julian Assange made from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. He has been granted political asylum by Ecuador but it is far from clear how he will ever be able to leave the embassy without being arrested by British Police and extradited to Sweden.

Regardless of what anyone might think about Julian Assange or the activities of WikiLeaks one thing I'm sure we can all agree upon - his fighting spirit!

Here is a man who has several powerful nations against him, a man who has very little in the way of clear options, a man who has a very uncertain future.....
And yet I found it truly inspiring that this man is in high spirits, has a clear purpose and is thankful and focussing for all the positive things around him.

It is unlikely that you or I will ever have to face such an apparently desolate situation as Julian Assange finds himself in. But we can all learn something from his resolve. He is focussing on the support from the public and giving thanks for it, he is clear that he must avoid extradition and he is not being dragged down by what I am sure he views as temporary circumstances.

It is all too easy to focus on the problems and not notice the great things in our lives. It is all too easy to lose sight of our most important goals and it is certainly easy to let life drag down our spirits. I am thankful to Julian Assange for being an inspiration and showing us how to handle life's problems with determination, humility and dignity.
