must remind myself

When things get hard, I always must remind myself that it’s exactly the right time to focus in rather than fall apart. It’s easy to do great work and all of the right things by everyone when everything is easy. That’s no measure of character or will though. The moment I feel the winds change, see the uphill climb, feel the weight added on — that’s the time to double down and fall back on my character. When things are hardest, that’s the time it matters most to do right, to be sharp, to be resilient, and to be a force for good. To be able to do so in the moments it feels hardest is what builds character and sets one up best for the future.
