Great names usually have a crazy story to tell. From Oprah Winfrey to J.K Rowling, Tyler Perry, Malala Yousafzai…Albert Einstein, name it. They experienced a fair share of crap on their paths to greatness.
Naturally, there are times of doubt, but these guys decided that their pain would not determine their choices or define their existence. They forged on to ensure their dreams came to pass.
It’s easy to let an ordeal define you. It’s tougher not to let it. The courage to reinvent yourself often comes from a knowing that your worth is beyond bad news. The value of you remains after the dust has settled.
No matter what happens to you, boldly standing on the dust, you can firmly say in the words of the poet, Maya Angelou, “Still I Rise”.
The soul is designed to rise above obstacles, pain and shame. It happened to you; it is not you. Pain is not your name.
