But this is counter-intuitive. Overwhelm, fear, anxiety, and desperation will take over. We’ll succumb to the limited view that causes us to retreat and avoid exploring what’s possible, or at worst, lash out with abandonment or become violent to our self or others.
Bukowski said…“There are worse things than being alone, but it often takes decades to realize this and most often when we do, it’s too late. And there’s nothing worse than too late.”
Change ‘being alone’ for any number of other ‘worse things’; like, being wrong, being vulnerable, being oppressed, being victimized, or experiencing struggle and failure.
The irony is, it’s in that moment when your life is at its worst that represents the exact learning and capacity building moment you require to grow. It’s your opportunity to embrace it for what it is, namely a call-to-action. Action, that allows you to crawl out from under the weight of your situation before it’s too late. And by stepping into action, you become an example to the world, a leader and a mentor to others.
“If all you can do is crawl, start crawling.” – Rumi
The world is looking for you to be its hero, its savior. The one who can show us the way. This is what the world needs from you the most, when your life is at its worst, and when it’s at its best.
