Have you ever been so down on your luck that it left you pleading out “When will it stop?!” Have you ever fallen so far down that you had to look up to see rock bottom? I’m sure at some point in your life you’ve faced that one obstacle that looked so daunting you didn’t even want to try. I’m sure there are times that you’ve prayed for it all to end; that your trials and tribulations would be no more. The night is darkest just before the dawn – but within that darkness – are the brightest stars! Out of every heartache, there’s a lesson. Out of every struggle, there’s a lesson. Out of every disappointment, there’s a lesson. Are you hearing me?! If you lose, you better come out with a game plan to not lose again. If you fail, you better have the blueprint to succeed the next time around. Life ain’t easy. But if you take nothing away from your struggles, life is only going to get worse.
If you go through life with a “woe is me” mentality, you will miss your redemption moment! If you go through life moping and crying, you will waste your greatness! If you allow life to beat you down without putting up a fight, you will lose your victory! Les Brown said it best, “when life knocks you down, try and land on your back – because if you can look up, you can get up!” You’ve fought too hard and too long to give up now; don’t quit! Commit, fight back, win! The 12th Round is NOW!
