You Have to Take Your Power Back

You have to take your power back…you can’t allow yourself to become powerless to your circumstances.

When adversity strikes, you can do one of two things with it.

You can let it destroy you or allow it to empower you. 

If you let it destroy you, you have given in to the circumstances as though you have no power over them.  Then you wither and acquiesce in the comfort (yes people become comfortable with pain) of your circumstances, This is lack of will. This is giving up.

If you allow it to empower you, there’s growth.  This growth is difficult because your soul is fragile. But you know comfort zones are dead zones and there’s no life there…and you want life. So you seek wisdom and start recognizing opportunity.  Purpose becomes important, and you have a burning desire to make a difference in the lives of others.  And then the world opens up and the possibilities are endless.  

Be grateful for adversity for it brings about miracles you never could have imagined before the crisis.
