Life is not meant to be easy. Nor is life meant to be hard. Life is just what it is. We all go through ups and downs, life and death and the occasional break up. Let's face it, none of us get out of this life alive so make the best of today because tomorrow has yet to happen. The point is, every human walking this planet experiences trials and tribulations - some harder than others but we all have them! We always will - let's help one another learn how to pick themselves up and become a better person than yesterday.
It's not what we do or how we do it, it's why we do it. Are we doing it to further our self interests or are we doing it because it's simply the right thing to do? You will find the most success in challenging yourself to overcome adversity in ways that inspire others.
Don't feel sorry for yourself or even someone else for that matter. We will continue to learn from from mistakes and hardships, with our head held high, being a stronger person for it.
The most "successful" people we know are not defined by money or fancy cars or even their lifestyle. Success can be defined many ways but one thing is for sure, it's not money itself. Truly successful people express a degree of self worth, value and carry themselves with utter confidence - confidence that is contagious. Confidence not to be confused with arrogance. And confidence that will overcome adversity no matter what.
You might be down but you are never out. The times one overcomes the trials and tribulations in life will define ones success. Be Confident. Be Bold. Be Yourself.
