I was that guy (kid) with the gun in his mouth once upon a time. Literally. I was depressed and completely lost. It’s taken years and years of constant work, but now I am completely happy and free.
It took a rock bottom experience for me to finally wake up. The thing is, I could have dug much deeper. I made the choice for that to be my rock bottom, and decided to stop digging.
If you are reading this and feel like you are stuck, depressed, scared, hopeless, etc. just know there is hope. You can choose TODAY to be done digging and start to pull yourself out.
There will never be a time when it’s easy or comfortable, but I promise you it’s better than being miserable.
This also goes for any of you that have big hopes and dreams but are too afraid to take that first step. “Oh but I’ll never be good enough” “People will think I’m so arrogant for even trying this” “But what if I fail” etc.
You can make the choice right now to stop making excuses and start TAKING ACTION. One step at a time, one day at a time.
