The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill; and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success; if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved. ~Samuel Smiles
What are you making of your life?
As I was watching this video tonight, I got chills at the part that Les Brown says “I think the challenge is to begin to become in alignment with who we truly are and work diligently to manifest our greatness.”
I have been saying this for years and I didn’t even know he said it. When I was given a disease I neither wanted nor appreciated at the young age of 22 years old, all I could think was “Why me?” Everyone else was happy and having a great time and there I was with SPF 50 trying not to pull a Vampire Diaries moment and burn up as I hit the sun. We are not going to go into the rest of the diseases and nonsense that followed with my way of thinking, but I will tell you that I was destined for greatness just like this video says.
I was destined to find my way out of that black put of despair, to fight through pain and agony that lasted years, and to come out on top saying I told you so! I told you. I am in control of me. I am. So I want you to watch this, and ponder moments you have thought you were not worthy of greatness nor did you deserve it, because the bottom line is, yes you do.
So as I pondered this for my upcoming content in my Head|Heart|Health Club, I have to say to all of you watching this, it’s you. You got this. If this inspired you in any way to take more action in your life, let me know.
