When you end up where you don’t want to be,
When life pushes against you,
When you drift from the path you set out to follow,
When pain, failure, fear, despair, loneliness, and struggle greet you at your home,
It’s up to us to make the most of our circumstances and find a way to calm the storm and focus on our next step through the rain.
In fact, it’s our responsibility.
This thing that you’re up against…
This setback that’s been dragging you down…
This is your chance. This is your moment to be better.
To improve ourselves and strive for purpose and meaning.
Maybe this even is exactly what you needed? A catalyst that spins you towards a heroic journey you dream about. A chance to help others by helping yourself, and show them how to do the same.
Circumstances, the things that have happened to us specifically, do not change, but we do. We change because of the circumstances that get in the way of our bulldozing ego and show us a better way to live.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
— Josh Waggoner
