There will always be doubt, there will always be fear. These are powerful human emotions that have guided humanity to the top of the animal world. Without these “negative” emotions where would be be today? Without the fear of being eaten, would we have ever learned to run? Without doubting where our next meal would come from, would we have learned to farm? Without these emotions, would we even asked ourselves any questions worth answering?

Fortitude, Courage, Belief… none of these exist without counterparts like fear and doubt.

When we feel like life is overwhelming and we have doubt… when we fear what lies ahead… we MUST find gratitude for these gifts. They have the power to create magnificent change in our lives. These so called “negative” emotions are the fuel of our ancestors, the fire of greatness that forces us to rise up and DO BETTER. They are a part of us, and we can use them to ignite and maintain that powerful fire that fuels our COURAGE, FORTITUDE AND BELIEF in ourselves, in each other.

Greatness is not found in that which we have, but in that which we have overcome. Let your “down times” make your rise more significant. Let them be the yin to the yang, the moon to the sun, the darkness that makes the stars shine…

To you, to your ability to rise in the face of adversity and be grateful for all that is this crazy amazing life!

With love, Coach Michelle
