It’s okay to get knocked down but we expect and hope that you bounce back quickly and dig yourself out of the deep hole you dug

If you ever find yourself in an impossible situation from which there is no escape, I want you to remember something.

There is always a way out.

You may not like the choices. The outcomes may not be palatable. But you do have choices and paths forward.

Call it a comeback

If your mistakes seem too heavy a burden and too embarrassing to discuss, you can still save yourself. Call if a comeback or call it a rescue. You can suggest it is really an intervention. You are open to pick any name at all. But just make the right decision.

When life is crashing down, make sure you think of your place in this world.

  • Who is your family?
  • Who cares about you and do you care about them?
  • What do your friends think of you?
  • Will you be missed?
  • What is your legacy?
  • How do you see your legacy?

Little You Back Then

A long time ago, there was a little version of yourself, the one who looked at the world with awe and excitement. What happened to that person?

If you are like me, you still believe that things are possible, and that you can take yourself any place that you choose. It may not be easy, of course, but a little effort goes a long way.

  • Your own business
  • Your own place
  • Your own family
  • Your own significant other
  • Your own happiness
  • Your own life

Always remember that you can make a comeback. The future isn’t written in stone. Good things happen to everybody and they can happen to you too.

Keep believing in yourself. Appreciate every day for the new opportunities that it brings. Lastly, lean on people and let them help you have the best future possible.
