finding meaning in the face of adversity.

It’s hard, I know it’s hard! That slump that you’re in right now is difficult. It hurts, I know it hurts! It hurts so bad you don’t even want to think about it. “You’ll get through it” they tell me. Quick, let me grab my disguise for the day so no one can tell I am broken. I use my disguise as a tool to hide my depression. My main pieces of equipment, an empty smile; followed by a practiced laugh and rehearsed lines like “I’m fine”.  “But really……. I’m fine…..”

better than you know, let me break this down for you.

When your body and mind is in deep pain, heart break, depression; it is a call to action. Your body is telling you “Hey, it’s time to grow”. Most people try to hide this pain. Most people are scared to face their demons. Don’t be like most people. Your body and your mind are calling out, screaming, “It’s time to grow”! The call to action is there but you have to decide whether you take the opportunity to grow or run. It will not be easy, but it will be worth it! Face your fears head on, persist with faith, and destroy all the negative thoughts that have imprisoned you. “I am not a victim”. “I am stronger than my problems”. When you do this, you will achieve greatness beyond what you thought possible.

what is the solution?

You want to know where the solution is. This world is filled with people looking for the solution. They look inside bottles of alcohol. They look inside prescription drug containers. They look inside other people only to figure out that everyone is in the same fight. Never would they ever look inside themselves. If you knew what was inside of you……oh only if you knew. Inside of you there is greatness beyond your understanding. You my friend are here for a reason. If you want to break those chains that are locking down your greatness, here is what you must do.

the solution.

  You are the solution. Listen to your heart and do the things that you love. Live everyday like you are on a mission to fulfill your purpose. You know why people don’t get things done?  People don’t get things done because it’s not important. They don’t live their lives with urgency. They see a job as just a job. Oh and money? In their opinion money is not a topic to be discussed. Purposeful people see money as a tool to fulfill their purpose. Everything revolves around their mission to LIVE their dream.  You want to come out of your slump? Look inside of yourself. Learn what you love, hate, live for. The solution is inside of you my friend. Use every waking minute to find that purpose and once you have; use the rest of the time you have left on this earth to fulfill it.
