Some Will Rise
Updated: Feb 16, 2020
Adversity introduces a man to himself.
It’s in that moment, when things aren’t going well when we get to find out who you really are.
When we get to look into your soul and see what you’re made of
When we get to see whether your talk is cheap
Whether you’re true to your word and can keep your promise.
Whether you have the strength of will
It's in that moment, when we get to see what you really value
What you really stand for, not just in word, but also in deed.
Everyone is happy when things are going well, but when things begin to falter, the truth is quickly revealed, some will stay and others will run.
Some will rise above and conquer
Others will look for a way out, for an excuse
Some will double down, dig their heels it, and go to work to make things right
Others will opt for the most basic of the animal instincts, self-preservation
And often it’s a matter of personal character, you either have it in you or you don’t, you will either rise or fall, it’s ingrained in your DNA.
Other times, you have to look yourself in the mirror and choose, who do you want to be?
Because it really is as simple as making a decision
