Have you ever reached the place when you feel like you may be at your lowest point? When you feel desperate, frustrated, fearful?
There has to be more than this, I thought. But I didn’t do anything about it. I was afraid. I was uncertain.
Today as I was reading my buddy Steve’s blog at End The Grind , I read the story of one of his readers, Joe. (If you have the time, I recommend you read Joe’s dilemma in his own words).
Joe has come to the place where a “good” life is not enough. Sometimes when that happens, we face depression and all sorts of self-doubt because we wonder what right we have to be frustrated when so many other people have it so much worse off than we do.
There is no magic pill!
There is no easy way out of your obstacles, but that is the blessing of them.
I heard Cicely Tyson say in an interview recently that she treasures the negative experiences because after she has faced them and realizes that she’s still standing, she gains greater confidence and courage.
You have the same resolve within you. You can face your obstacles and learn to welcome them for where they will take you.
They are the locomotives of your life. They are the engines that drive the momentum and creativity of your soul. Without obstacles, we might never envision a new or better way. Without obstacles, we might never imagine alternate options.
Without obstacles, we might never envision a new or better way.
Once you realize that there is no magic pill and no cavalry coming to rescue you, then you can rise to your own occasion. You can choose to be your own hero.
It all lies within. All that is left is the decision to do…and the will to do. Take action and change your life. Don’t wait. Don’t think about it. Do it!
