It can be frustrating to jump into something new, but you truly never know who you will meet and what path they will take you on next… Understand two things: you are capable of changing your life, and you are strong enough to have the courage to reach a goal and pursue a dream. If someone else is doing it, you can do it too. — Alexa Cucchiara, Power to Persevere
The challenging moments we are faced are opportunities for us to try something new and break out of our comfort zones. We ultimately have nothing to lose. In my eyes, you only have something to gain.
For instance, before embarking on my book writing journey, I did not think that it was possible. I had never heard of anyone my age revealing both this much personal information and wisdom to the world in the form of literature. I thought I had to have had many more years of life experience to be where I am today like Eckhart Tolle and Oprah Winfrey.
Whenever I had these thoughts, I reminded myself that everyone’s journey is different and age does not justify experience. There are people my age who have gone through worse ordeals that I cannot relate to. And on the contrary, there are also those who have not been through any trauma at all.
In Power to Persevere, I talk about a few people who were able to break out of their comfort zones to create a new and extraordinary life:
- Jay Shetty
- Jack Wallace
- Jack Witherspoon
Jay turned his experience as a monk into providing value to others in the corporate work space, Wallace turned his boating accident into a drive to learn sled hockey and win gold at Paralympic contests, and Witherspoon turned his passion for cooking when he was going through chemotherapy into a brand at the age of six.
The world is your oyster. You never know how the next chapter of your life will open up for you. Use your interests to ultimately help you persevere in life.
