You’ve made it

You can handle whatever life gives you. You did it yesterday, and the day before. You’ve done it all your life, and it has brought you to where you are today. Somehow, in some way, you have successfully made your way through every challenge, to arrive at this point in life, right here, right now.

Every day for as long as you can remember you’ve faced challenges, you’ve solved problems, and you have worked your way through the obstacles that blocked your path. You have proved to yourself and to the world that you are resourceful, that you are effective, that you can propel yourself to where you want to be.

Nothing yet has stopped you. You proven that you can handle the challenges. Don’t stop now. Have the courage to go for what you truly want. Sure, the task looks daunting. Sure, there are hurdles to be overcome. Yet that’s what you’re so good at doing. You’ve made it here, and you can make it anywhere you want to go.
