In the period of roughly 10 minutes on a Facebook Live video I made a few weeks ago, all of these sad events were referenced in reader comments.
Circumstances that are tragic? Without a doubt, yes.
But there was also a positive cause for their sharing. All of these were catalysts for individuals to take action.
Let's have a conversation about it...
Making The Most Of Life's "Moments"
Nobody wants to be in these situations. Nonetheless, they occur.
And, in my opinion, the most important thing is how you respond to them.
When confronted with difficulties, many who commented on my live stream did not give up.
Rather, they persisted.
They utilized their personal experience as a springboard to take massive action. When you find yourself with your back against the wall, this is what occurs.
And it was precisely the message I wanted to send when I first went "live" that morning. Those remarks hammered home the point more forcefully than I could have imagined.
And it's for this reason that I'd want to share their message with you today.
So Here Are Two Quick Takeaways
For starters, life is short... Start living and giving your all now, rather than waiting for a wake-up call. You only got one shot at it. Get clear on your goals and go after them!
Two, identify and embrace those tragic or unfortunate situations when they occur. I genuinely believe we discover our brilliance at those moments. You may be in pain, but you're not out of the woods yet. Take what you've learned and move on.
So, the next time you meet hardship, will you give up or will you endure and utilize the situation as a springboard to take action?
As for myself... "Breakdown to Breakthrough" is a notion that I really believe in. Always keep in mind that greatness awaits you on the other side of that moment.
