Let’s face it, life is difficult. It’s mostly a steep climb. We hit walls daily. Things rarely go the way we want them to. People disappoint and hurt us. Advertising kicks our self esteem to the curb. We’ll always be too hard on ourselves. Barrels come flying from every direction every day and we do our best to hurdle them until we have no more jump in us. The thing is this will never change. Like Donkey Kong, those barrels will keep coming and coming and coming… Our wish to change a person, event, or situation will not stop the angry eight hundred pound Gorilla known as life. And the solution isn’t to jump higher or fight harder. It’s not about putting more hours in at work, forcing yourself to go on another diet, grinding away in front of the computer, avoiding people, holding resentment, or wishing you won the lottery.
The key to fighting adversity comes from within. Out there will only change once in here changes. The truth is clouds can part. The sun is there. But the only way to see your potential is to feel it. On your skin. In your heart. In your blood. Once you feel it, you’ll see it, then you’ll live it. The key to fighting adversity is to change your state. Don’t focus on changing your life. If you change your state, your life will change. Internal alignment straightens your path. Never the other way around.
When you change your state - energy, attitude, perspective, walls will turn into doors.
Here’s a few tips on how.

I recently posted “When you believe you’re worth something, the universe moves.” I believe this with every fiber of my being. The internal shift that happens when one is convinced of their value and unique gifts, changes every. single. thing. What you can do. Who you attract. What you think is possible. Instead of sucking energy and getting caught into vicious negative thought patterns that dilute your being, strip your soul, and smash your dreams, you begin to generate energy that punctures space and grabs stars.
I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll say it another two thousand. Everything ends or begins with your thoughts. What you believe will determine where you go. Throughout you life, you’ve read and seen what is possible. Pretty much anything. But they are not possible for you. That’s because your beliefs are limited. If you believe you are not worth much, you will not go far. If you believe you can’t do much, you will not do anything. If you believe you don’t deserve much, your life will always be you watching commercials.
So the question is how do you believe you’re worth something?
Worth is not something you believe. It’s something you build. Your beliefs on what you’re worth manifest as a result of building. Or more accurately, rebuilding.
How are you rebuilding your life? Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually? In relationships, fitness, diet, and addictions. How are you rebuilding your character? How are you protecting yourself? How are you finally being heard?
If you don’t have a long growing list of answers to these questions, the universe will not move for you. Instead, it will suck you in. You will do things that make you feel shitty about yourself, cementing beliefs that were put upon you by your story and feelings of worthlessness. You will numb yourself and disappear.
Don’t ask me how to believe in something. Show me. Show yourself. Show the world. Aren’t you curious what’s possible? What’s the alternative? Rot and wilt away, allowing your past to strangle you?
You want to believe you’re worth something? Start proving yourself wrong, share the gifts you were meant to share with the world, and finally for the first time in your fucking life,
