"You know why people quit? People don't have Pride in what they do. You know why people stop? They are Selfish and it's just about them. When you have a Purpose for why you're doing what you're doing and want to honor the sacrifices that others have made for you, it's easy for you to keep going when you hit adversity. If every Decision and Choice you make is just about you, at a certain point life's going to hit you with something that's a lot tougher than you and it's going to make you quit because you don't have a driving force for why you do what you do. At a certain point in life, it can't just be about you." - @inkyjohnson
This past week, I was hit by life harder than I've ever been hit before. It made me realize a lot about my life. Inky Johnson, one of my favorite speakers, really hit home when I heard this speech. Life is going to hit you, many of times when you're least expecting it, and it's going to put you on your ass. But it's how you respond to those hits and adversity that make you the person that you are. Find strength in those situations. Remember all the people who have been there for you, supported you, and raised you to be the person that you are. Use those people, and anything else you rely on, to push through those hard times. Work hard every day for those people, and never forget those who got you to where you are today. Count your blessings people, and stop and just be grateful for a moment for everything that life has given you. I love my parents endlessly, thank you both for everything that you've given me.
I know this isn't my typical post, it's a change of direction, but I hope everyone can draw from the message. Everyone have a great rest of the week. #NFGU #Findyourdrive
