Don’t Count Yourself Out Yet!


I feel so fortunate that I meet so many different people from all over the world – they tell me how much motivation I give them and how I make them feel so good.  But I do meet people who are down and need to be picked up.  So here is my message today:  We all get knocked down during certain times in our life, but it is our job to pick ourselves up and remind everyone that times may be tough, but we are tougher.

The fantasy world where there are ‘no problems’ is just that – a fantasy.  What people choose to do with the obstacles put in front of them will separate not just the strong from the weak.  It also separates those that face the fear and the negativity from the naysayers.  Be the person who gets right back up on their feet.  Negativity is like falling into quicksand – the longer you fight it and stay stuck in it – the deeper you sink.  

Remind yourself today just how grateful you are to have whatever you have; to have family and friends that love you.  If you have distanced yourself from those that care, do yourself a big favor and come back.  You once were a child that thought anything was possible.  I believe that is still the case.  So when they push you past the point of no return – remind yourself and everyone else that you will be back!
