Are you human?

Every human has what it takes to battle through adversity. However, adversity always brings us to a moment of choice.

A moment when we choose to be a victim or a victor.

A moment when we choose to press forward or to remain still.

A moment when we choose to win or we choose to be defeated.

We ALL have to face adversity – MANY TIMES! Some of us will choose to “fight” and as a result, we become tougher. Some of us will choose to be pitiful, throw a pity party, feel sorry for ourselves, quit, and drown!

Some of us choose to drown. Drown in our own sorrow. Drown in our own tears. Drown in the same adversity that thousands of other humans chose to swim out of.

If you’re going through something, stop feeling sorry for yourself. You are human, and trust me – you can get through this. But only if you choose to!

You are not stuck.

You are not stuck, it’s all in your head.

Change your mindset and change your life. Successful people put themselves in a position to succeed. They are very intentional and leave very little up to “chance” or “luck.” Successful people create their own circumstances.

The unsuccessful blame their shortcomings on their circumstances. This is why they continue to lose.

Listen, WE are in control! And we have to be man/woman enough to admit it. WE are in control! If we don’t like our current circumstances, we have the time and opportunity to change them. No excuses – only adjustments!
