Because things will happen (the good, the bad, the in-between). Every day.
How we move forward with each is our choice.
When something bad happens we need to ask ourselves…
What will we do with what we've learned from the experience?
How will we press on regardless of the past?
We might need to stop what we've been doing, or we might need to do a little more.
We may need to do something completely different.
But we need to rise and keep moving forward. It's how we get to the good things.
And once we get to those good things, we need to ask ourselves…
What will we do with the progress we've made?
We acknowledge it. We enjoy it. We celebrate it.
But then we ask ourselves how we can reach for even better. What's the next step?
Because we don't want to rest in complacency.
We want to be responsible to better ... to progress ... to the future.
We rise. We reach. Anything else ... we're just sleeping.
