Every story needs failure, especially your own. We love an underdog. We love to know a character, real or fictional, who fights his or her way back to the light. And the further they fall and the steeper their climb, the better. Maybe right now you’re failing at something. Join the club. No matter what’s happening in our lives here’s what we can count on: at least one thing, no matter how small, isn’t the way we want it to be. That’s okay. Keep reaching. Keep pulling yourself up. You’re going to stumble. There will be some serious cuts and bruises along the way. Some so serious that you think you’ll never recover. But you will. You are so much braver, so much more resilient, than you think you are. You’ll only discover this when you’re truly being tested, so take the test. I promise you that someday, maybe long into the future, you’re going to get a summit and the view is going to be more than worth it.
