When You Hit Rock Bottom.

When you hit rock bottom, you’ve found your core. What you see now is what is really there.

No subterfuge. No mystery. No games. No imitation.

Just brutal honesty.

When you hit rock bottom, you’re standing on your launch pad.

There is nothing stronger from which to propel yourself forward.

Keep pushing. Keep trying. Keep struggling. Keeping moving toward where you want to be.

You might be closer than you think.

When you hit rock bottom, the things that used to matter don’t mean so much.

It’s a chance to get your priorities back in order.

Stop worries about things you can’t fix. Stop wasting time. Stop following the rules.

Break away from your baggage.

When you hit rock bottom, the only thing to do is to work harder.

Start fixing the problems standing in your way to be amazing.

Be purposeful. Be powerful. Be unstoppable. Be outrageous.

You have nothing to lose now.

When you hit rock bottom, it’s time to get busy.

When you hit rock bottom, it’s time to make changes.

When you hit rock bottom, it’s time to go start being awesome.

Sometimes the only way out of your problems is going through them.

Push on.
