You’ve Got This.

You’ve got this.

This moment you’re going through right now. This trying time. The sleepless nights. The tossing and turning. The self-doubt and embarrassment that you feel.

You’ve got this.

Let me remind you that life is what you make it. The outcomes you experience aren’t always fun or fair or logical.

Sometimes it just feels like you’re getting screwed.

Here’s the thing. You’ve got this. You really do.

You’re strong enough to take the blows. You’re smart enough to find a new angle. You are resilient and determined and uniquely capable.

It’s the moment right here that’s dangerous. The one you’re in right now.

See, the only thing that can defeat you is your decision to give up. It’s deadly. And dangerous. And sometimes feels like the only option you have.

But here’s the truth — on the other side of all of this mess you’re going through is the progress you’ve been begging for.

The struggle is messy but success is sweet.

It’s a small thing to not give up. But it requires big people and even bigger thinking.

You might need other people to hold on for you. You might need to put yourself in the position where you can’t back down, slow down, or quit.

Whatever you have to do, remember that you got this.

Take a breath. Take another step. Keep focused on the prize.

It’s always worth it when you get there.
