I had a talk with a guy I do business with yesterday. Him and his wife are coming up on hard times and they are very discouraged. I reached out to him yesterday in hopes that I could give him some business but it just wasn’t possible. I asked how were things going and he said he wish he could report great news but he was still in the storm.
I told him to “Keep your High Faith in Low Times” and that he would be back and better than ever. He gave me respect and appreciation and told me he would share my words with his wife.
It was in that moment where I knew I needed to take heed to my own advice after the conversation I had with my wife. I’ve let my circumstance get to me and take me down a notch. Good things are happening and I’m not embracing and appreciating that enough. I took need to keep my “High Faith in Low Times” like I told him.
Although I like the fact that I can pick someone else up when I’m down, I got to believe in the things I say more than anyone else. That’s integrity 101 and I can’t administer if I don’t exude.
As I walk into this weekend, I will keep my own words to others in mind. I will work to embody what I say and believe, even when the road gets tough. Tough roads are the character builders on life’s journey. You only make it through the journey with high faith.
Have a great weekend
