Inky Johnson lost his career in one football tackle. When he woke up in the hospital after a life-saving surgery, the doctor told him, “Son, you will never be able to use you right arm and shoulder again.” Inky responded, “You’re wrong. I’m alive. I’m gonna use this for the rest of my life.”
And he has. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cznfzIP1tTs
When I use the things that life brings me with gusto, my happiness doesn’t derail, joy doesn’t skip a beat, and I don’t multiply misery.
I want adversity to reveal my strength, not my immaturity; my patience, not my whining; my discipline, not my laziness.
Adversity will come. I will move with it (as Inky demonstrates)…deeper into my core of power.
