Every person has an inner strength. More than they believe they have but sometimes it takes our “true” inner circle of friends and family to bring it out.
“A business mentor once told me that no great success or empire was created alone. If you can achieve it alone then it is not the great. It may be ‘good enough’ but not great.”
We’ve all been through the ringer so I won’t preach to the choir but if we all put our problems in a bucket and picked someone else’s, we would beg for ours back. Why? Because our issues were tailored made by life to make “you” stronger. I may not be able to handle your issues but I’m pretty sure you couldn’t handle mine because we are only given as much as we can bare at that moment in life. I’ve been around. Homeless. Jobless. Lived in slums, drug houses, rat and roach INFESTED like you wouldn’t believe. Held up at gun point, jumped. Had a friend literally die in my hands of an overdose as the medic came. I’ve lost everything “after” being on the greener grass on the other side. I know falling from grace. I’ve been sued for the average persons salary 3 to 4 times over. Many of us has seen rock bottom. I’ve seen it several times but it made me strong.
All of this was just to say that I made it through because people were in my life that pulled me through. And yes, I had to overcome a level of pride that wouldn’t willingly accept help. And sometimes it came in forms that I would have never expected. When my “best” friend turned their back and let me fall alone. Strangers helped me pull my life together. When I was losing hope in life, family, and love, someone entered my life that renewed my faith.
Life can be very sociopathic and unexpected but after it receives its laugh it always opens doors after prior ones slam shut in our life but only after we prove that we will not quit in the face of extreme adversity.
“There is no such thing as fail, only quit”
“There is no such thing as ‘try’, only do or don’t do”
People will always enter your life when you need them, not when you want them. And you will attract people to you and into your life based on who you are, not on what you want. This world will only give you what you ask for and believe whether consciously or subconsciously. Because you cannot say what you want but believe the total opposite and expect to receive what you don’t believe.
“That in which you can conceive and ‘wholeheartedly’ believe, you can and will receive and achieve with dedicated effort and undying passion towards that goal”
My real friends and family do not have to ask for my help. They just have to tell me what they need. I am always there for them through the thick and thin. Ride or die.
“A good friend will bail you out but your best friend will be beside you working to get free together”
To my loved ones. You never have to tell me you appreciate me and are grateful for me. I know 🙂 you have already earned my respect and support and you will have it forever.
