When Things Get Tough, Rely On Your Values

Everyone needs a bedrock to bounce back off

We get tested in life. It’s unavoidable. When you’re out of options, or out of money, or out of time, you look within.

I have set my two personal values as Honesty and Positivity. Weirdly, I don’t find either of them that easy.

Too often I’m not honest with myself, and not positive enough. But I know the answer to most of the challenges I face lie in those two words.

Honesty helps define the problem. What’s really going on? Not what do you want people to think, but what’s actually the root cause.

Positivity helps you find a way forward. Action follows positivity like one foot automatically goes in front of the other when you walk.

So here I am, in need of my two old pals again. Let’s go for a walk…

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
