Morning Cup of Joe – A Sign of Strength

Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, something bad happens. It seems like as soon as you start making progress of any kind, something happens to bring you back down to where you started if not deeper into a hole. Whether it’s trouble at work, a fight with a loved one or financial struggles, if it’s not one thing, it’s another. When we are going through tough times in our lives, giving up on ourselves should never be an option. The strength to carry on must come from within. At times, you may feel like throwing your hands up altogether but that’s not going to solve your problem. You have to dig deep down inside and find a way to make it through and take it one day at a time.

Tough times present opportunities for us to find strength we may not have even known we had. When it rains, it certainly seems like it pours. When we are faced with challenges, it seems as if they come down like a torrential downpour. The thing about the rain is that eventually it stops. What typically happens after the rain is the sun inevitably comes out.

Expect your sun to shine no matter how hard it’s raining. The bad times in our lives can sometimes seem to outweigh the good but that’s an illusion. Consider the terrible events that have occurred in your life compared to the wonderful things that will continue to transpire and there truly is no comparison. This too shall pass, no matter what the problem may be.

Understand that anyone can give up, that is the easiest thing in the world to do. The true sign of strength is keeping it together and holding on when everyone else would understand why you fell apart. Your best days are ahead of you. Whatever you are facing, no matter how great the problem may seem, is a temporary setback. You have come too far to give up now.

My journey has taught me that most victories come after we’ve experienced great adversity. Your goal is to stay strong and find a way to hold on while you wait on your breakthrough. Believe me, it’s coming.

Don’t give up three seconds before the miracle happens.

To The Top!
Joe Paul
