Life is going to hit you.
Over & Over & Over.
Expect no mercy.
It will be relentless.
These hits … whether they be physical, mental, emotional, or financial, will leave scars.
BE THANKFUL FOR YOUR BEATINGS & THE SCARS THEY LEAVE.
Because those scars left and lessons learned will teach us, harden us, prepare us, guide us, and ultimately define us.
Perfection is a fairytale. It’s a highly polished story featuring fake, manufactured "images" of people sold to us that doesn't actually exist. That story is what drives insecurity, low self-esteem, lack of fulfillment, and ultimately regret.
The only thing you can be is you.
If you want to build a great life, you should spend each day progressing, learning, and working toward the best version of you.
Stop measuring yourself against others.
Start putting the lessons learned from life's hits to work today.
Every single day is a new opportunity to show the world that you will not be defeated.
You will not cower.
You will not sulk in self-pity.
You will not quit.
You will fight.
You will work.
You will battle to be the best you possible.
Be thankful for your scars, and wear them proudly.
