Sometimes life is like an arrow on a bow. We feel like no matter how much we sacrifice, we’re just going backwards. We must believe that our toughest battles expose the areas in our personal life, work, relationships that need our most attention and effort. When we commit to this it creates vulnerability because we’re so used to doing things a certain way or we feel weak because of our pride. Like the arrow, we must believe that these so called ‘setbacks’ are actually momentum for our biggest breakthroughs and the further you desire to go is predicated on how much you’re willing to pull. Above all, you’re only human. Surround yourself with people who are pulling for you.
