Life throws curves. Those curve balls really hurt when we get hit with them. But what do you do about it?
Reading about the editor of the New York Times, Jill Abramson, that was recently fired I was impressed by her speech at a graduation. She told them to follow advice her father had given her as a young girl, “Show what you’re made of.”
This is a powerful phrase and I think could be an anchor to staying your course. Persevering is the toughest part of obtaining your goals. It’s hard to keep the forward progress when people are being naysayers, issues create stumbling blocks, and well, life is life.
Do you know what that is? When I read that statement I physically feel myself stand taller. My feet feel rooted and my heart goes, “YES!” It’s empowering to know that I am strong, smart, and no wuss.
I have been pummeled of late with life’s powerful curve balls and I’ve just learned to bob and weave. I am staying my course with vengeance.
Are you? If you need another anchor to keep you solid, don’t look outside of you. Look inside.
“Show what you’re made of.”
