8. YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK.
Many a time, when we are faced with certain challenges, it is quite easy to forget how special and unique we are. We tend to lose confidence in ourselves, forgetting how far we have come and the huge successes we have recorded in the past. We forget that even for us to be conceived, we had to win a life deciding race while we were still incomplete. That on its own is enough reason to put your hands on your chest and say to yourself “I can do this”.
Renowned singer Bob Maley once said “You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice”.
I have had the priviledge of listening to a couple of friends and young individuals talking about their challenges and doubting their abilities. I spend some time getting to know them and hear their stories and in my eyes these individuals are performing little miracles everyday and yet they don’t see it. I listen to stories of them going through school with little or no support, parents raising children, some with learning difficulties or physical issues, or just children in a fairly crazy world. This requires more guts than a rejection from some nobody who has not walked in your shoes yet wants to define your worth or a book publisher who hasn’t even bothered to read your book. Again, it’s all about perspective.
The truth is this: You are stronger than you think you are and you will achieve virtually everything you set your heart to do as long as you believe in YOU!
Enjoy your day.
