Overcoming Adversity

September 3rd, 2010 by nealon

This is dedicated to my brother whose apartment caught fire last night (faulty wiring) all while his wife has been in the hospital for the last week with a serious condition and in the midst he’s been taking care of his 5 girls..Hang in there bro…love ya!  It get’s better.  I should set you up a donate button.

Does it ever seem like the deck is stacked against you?  Like the harder you try the harder it gets?  Like just when you think you’re breaking through a barrier that another bigger one jumps in your way?  I know I have.  During my journey to prosperous health I had more than a couple of set backs, detours and just plain two by fours across the back of my head.

Well, here’s what I’ve come to appreciate about when you’re down.  It has been said that our greatest moments of explosive growth and advancement are quite often preceded by what may look like “low moments”.  The theory being that the energy required to lift you up to the next level is obtained by crouching down low before the leap, like a high jumper before a jump or a cat getting ready to pounce.  I know I have seen it in my life and when I see adversity coming or things are looking down at the moment, I take it as a sign that some great moments are just around the bend…don’t miss your jump!

Be Well,

See you at the Decatur Book Festival this weekend
