Pick Yourself Up When You Are Down – That’s When It Counts The Most

You know those days where you feel like your dreams might never happen? The days where your progress is slower than you want it to be?

Those days where the gap between where you are and where you want to feel a million miles wide?

Those days where you question yourself, doubt yourself, and get down on yourself?


That’s when you need self-LOVE, self-BELIEF, and sheer chutzpah the most.

See, it’s not the moments where we are winning that define our destiny. It’s what we do in the moments where we feel defeated that do.

It’s what we decide to believe, what we decide to focus on, and what we decide to do when we feel at our weakest that determines whether we rise or fall.

That’s what writes our story,

That’s what influences the next chapter,


It’s what shapes our character.


If you are feeling your body, relationship, financial status, or business aren’t where you want them to be right now, don’t give up – and don’t you dare think about throwing in the towel.

Dig in DEEP instead.

Find that love and respect for yourself, even when it’s hard.

Give yourself the encouragement you need, even when you wonder you’ve got what it takes to move forward.

Believe in your potential, even if you don’t know what to do next.

Focus on your vision, even if you can’t see the pathway yet.

This is your breakthrough moment just waiting to happen.

This is the universe waiting for you to step fully into the life you dream of.

This is where the magic is.

Do whatever it takes today, to pick yourself and keep taking those baby steps or making those giant leaps of faith because the life you dream of is on the other side.

As Charles Bukowski said so beautifully, “Drink from the well of yourself, and begin again.”
