Over the last few months I've heard from a lot of good supportive people and I appreciate it very much.
One thing I hear from time to time is some variation of "I don't think I'd have your strength" or "I don't think I'd have the strength to go through what you're going through.
To be honest, I'm not that strong mentally.
It gets to me, if not daily, then weekly. I have moments where I totally break down. I've had thoughts that I can't keep going through one punch in the face after another. Thoughts of I just want to quit.
But I don't quit. I do take the next punch in the face. I do keep going.
And you would too. You have strength you aren't even aware of yet. Trust me.
And here's the key. I HAVE NO OTHER OPTIONS. BE STRONG, KEEP MY HEAD UP AND KEEP GOING. MY ONLY OPTION IS TO FIGHT UNTIL I WIN. PERIOD!! And you would too. I don't have a wife and kids but I'm very lucky to have my parents for great support, extended family and friends. If you have a spouse and kids you'd really have more to fight for. Even more reason to live.
I often hear entrepreneurs say, go all in, don't have a plan b. I'm a very risk averse person so I aways thought that was bs advice, everyone needs a fallback position.
But maybe they are right. If you want to make it as an entrepreneur, a business man or woman, maybe you have to have no other option but to succeed in your dream.
Maybe that's where the fight comes from to win.
You have mental and inner strengths you haven't even seen yet.
I believe everyone in life will face 3 or 4 life changing events, decisions, battles which could change the course of their life dramatically.
Those are the moments you'll find your true strength. Not the mundane strengths like I don't want to get out of bed today or I don't want to go to the gym. No. Real shit. Real life altering moments.
That's where you'll find your real strength and toughness.
And you'll fight. And you'll #wintheday
one hour, one day at a time.
I live and find my strength minute to minute, day to day.
And so will you when needed.
We have no other option.
Thank you for your support my friends.
Wishing you a prosperous, happy and healthy day.
