Backed in the corner. Nowhere to go. Broke. Desperate. At the bottom.
Ever been there?
Plenty of people have. The question is; are they still there?
Over the last few weeks I have been contemplating different reasons why some people have significant success and others don't. The stories that we all remember are the big comebacks, the stories of someone who overcame the odds.
We have all watched Rocky, we might have experienced the 1980 USA Olympic hockey team, or even know the journeys of Henry Ford, Winston Churchill or Albert Einstein. These are all examples of against the odds victories.
We all love these stories and how they grip us.
Let's flip the coin; let's look at someone who is not a come from behind victory. Someone who is doing okay. Someone who always pays their bills on time. Someone who has a decent car and a good job.
Do we hear much about this guy?
Perhaps this is you. My belief is this; there are many people out there that are not living their purpose. As Claude Hamilton says, "There are few men daily pursuing their cause." There are many people that have good lives, not great lives.
The topic is so heavy I could write for hours, however your time is better spent discovering your cause and chasing your dream.
After only a brief couple days and a conversation with a person I truly admire I have discovered that it doesn't matter if you are backed in a corner, have nowhere to go, are broke or desperate or even at the bottom.
You get to choose. You get to author your story.
The world is waiting. Start writing your life today.
