You have to inspire even when it’s not in you. Everything around you can feel like it’s crumbling down, the walls are caving in and if it’s not one problem it’s another. How we deal with pressure and chaos, says so much about us. To some people I know, these type of situations can make them run away. Even the most intelligent and talented people fail, not because they don’t try, but because they can’t handle adversity, difficulties, and stress. They give up when the chips are down, and lean on the fact that at least they tried. They don’t see it through until the end, thinking that the starting line was enough.
I can’t be one of those people. I face problems every week that would probably kill the average person. Suicide is not on my mind. I made promises to not only my family and the people that care about me, but also to myself. It serves me nothing positive to give up. I want to spread the message of self-love and confidence to every single heart and mind that doesn’t know. However, when life takes its punches and jabs, it’s not always easy to keep that motivation up… but in the face of turmoil, you must fight through. It’s a selfish thing to continue on the mission, even when your own life is troubling you. Nevertheless, you never know who needs you. You never know who you can help or uplift, what people are struggling with, or how something you do can save someone else.
The concept of Flawesome, has been talked about for almost a year now. It’s not about saying that you should highlight your problems, but be proud that despite them you can still be amazing. The high points of this year, has definitely been appreciated, but it was persevering through the low points and still winning that I’m most proud of. I know that there are people out there that don’t know what they are capable of. They don’t see what we see when we look at them and say to ourselves, “Man, they could be doing this and they should do that…” We hold off on our emotions, thinking that someone else should already know. Never realizing that this person here, could really need you to say that to them. They may desperately need someone to step in and say “I believe in you enough for you to walk fearlessly in your purpose. Even when other people don’t, I do”. That’s it. That’s Flawesome. That’s the mission to be there to look beyond what other people don’t have and tell them you still believe in them.
