The road to greatness is tough. They say what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. But what they don’t mention is how treacherous that journey can be. I believe that faith is the strongest conviction, next to love. Faith remembers to pull you out when you least expect any remnants of salvation. Faith is not an achievement from reaching the end, it’s developed in the midst of struggle and challenges. Pursuing any dream is not easy. But when your dreams align with your life purpose, it’s impact is magnified tenfold. It challenges you to discover your strengths and weaknesses, and forces you address them in the most vulnerable situations. When you are struggling, it is difficult to accept there is value in that experience. But there is. Your internal monologue, sometimes offered as prayer, is really your dialogue with that Greater Source. Stay true to your convictions, faith and love.
