I’m sure that we can all admit that life will sometimes get blotchy. One minute, everything seems calm and clear, the next, chaotic and crazed! Regardless, it’s important to recognize that, in the end, those that are broken will blossom. Your strife garnered on the road of resolve is inevitable. There are going to be plenty of days where you feel like your best is not good enough…but one must still continue to move forward. But how do you do this? How do you prioritize your purpose when you are seemingly failing in the process?
The answer is quite simple. Just keep going. The setbacks you encounter are going to be the same ones that shape you into the leader that you were destined to be. Stumbling blocks build character. Appreciate the struggle. It makes you a better you. Know that there is no roadmap or blueprint on how to navigate your journey. Also know that you have limited control over how you get to your destination.
Despite the dysfunction in your direction, always remember that life gives you a second chance every day. A second chance to take another shot at success. Allow yourself to have complete control over who your future self will be…with or without any direction at all.
