Just because we see someone having some form of success does not mean that they do not encounter storms. They just learned how to stand and keep moving forward no matter the adversity.
The hidden scars that they bear show the battles survived, won and how they have chosen to live and not die in it. They wanted to give up at several points in their life. But they kept digging deep within themselves and found the strength to somehow keep going. They understood that the first step was learning to let go.
Do not think for one second that this is not possible for you to achieve. It is never easy, and it never will be. But that's what makes the achievements worth much more.
When you look back at the blood, sweat and tears you’ve shed to get to where you are. You begin to realize the value of who you are, the strength you bear and the worth of your accomplishments regardless of what anyone else thinks or says.
Everyone has the strength but only a few are willing to fight and tap into it. Adversity can come to knock you down but staying down is a choice. No matter the difficulty, there does come a time when you have to say ENOUGH is ENOUGH and start focusing on you.
This is not the time to give up. This is not the time to quit. For every time you get knocked down is an opportunity to get back up.
So, don’t give up. Let go. Keep Moving. Grow and Live.
