Put your hands up if you have never been through a difficult situation. I am almost too certain that your hands have remained down. Challenges and tough times are simply a part of life. We all go through them at one point of our lives or the other. No army experiences victory without fighting a war, and we too don’t make life progress unless we face and overcome difficult times.
I do understand that different people face different types of challenges. My people will say “what is doing me is not what is doing you”. For example, some people’s challenge is making money, for some others it is managing, growing or keeping it. Yet, there are ultimately the same thing- rainy days – Something beyond our control, something we didn’t expect, something cannot ordinarily predict when it will start or finish, something we only hope is temporary, something we all can’t wait to have behind us!
Here is big truth– Rainy days will always come but there would also always be umbrellas. What this means is that yes, there will always be certain things that are beyond my control but there will also always be something I can do to shield and protect myself. The rain might be beyond my control, but I have an umbrella that I can use to weather the storm!
So I don’t worry about rainy days. Rather, I prepare myself. When the day comes, I will be ready.
That for me is good news. Yet, there is still a better news.
After rain comes sunshine. Rain will come but it will surely not last forever. There is a silver lining in the cloud and the sun will surely rise again.
Raise your hands if you have ever come out of a difficult situation. Again, I am almost too certain you have. You came, saw and conquered! If you did it before, you can surely do it again. This is no motivation, it is simply the truth – because you are more than a conqueror; you are a warrior, a lion in the jungle, an eagle in the air, and a shark in the sea; you were born to reign, to fly, to lead and to conquer. You are more than capable of surviving another rain. You are equipped to thrive in spite of it.
Stay believing and conquer!
