Stay true even in the storms

 

If there is one promise I can make you it is this.

Your life will have many storms.

The storms take many forms. They come in all different shapes and sizes.

  • A restless night with not much sleep
  • The loss of a job
  • The loss of a dear person
  • A bad cold
  • A dreaded diagnosis

The storms will come, my friends. And you will make it through.

But what about your goals, your work and your values? Will you stay true to those when the storms, even the little ones, come your way?

Or, will you eat lots of sugary foods because it feels so good? Will you put off your work because you’re just too damn tired? Will you makes excuses, and they’re probably good ones when you are in the midst of a storm, of why you can’t do what you set out to accomplish?

The challenge lies in staying true to yourself, your goals, your work and your values even in the midst of storms.

So how do you do it? How do you stay true to yourself, even when times are tough?

I wish there was an easy answer I could give you. But the truth is, there isn’t.

You just go forward. You begin by knowing yourself and understanding your values. You create a strong foundation and then you fortify it regularly.

You hold on, even when the ride is wild, because on the other end there is growth, perseverance and strength. So much strength.
