MAN TO MAN – When we hit Rock Bottom, it could be the beginnings of greatness (187)
MAN TO MAN – When we hit Rock Bottom, it could be the beginnings of greatness
“Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.”- Muhammad Ali.
Reaching rock bottom
The strength of the bedrock must be determined before great heights are reached…
The most inspiring stories always come from those who hit their bedrock.
We who are looking for guidance yearn to hear the testimonial of those that have gone before us.
Wether it’s developing an intimate and lasting relationship with a spouse, or building an enterprise, they all come at a price.
Finding our bedrock requires digging, which feels painful at times, why?
We discover things that are unpleasant
We relive past failures, thinking they were forever buried, no one to see. As they get excavated, we relive the failure and humiliation that came with the failure.
We see that we built areas of our life on shifting sand rather than a bedrock. Things we were taught go through the fire. And we discover that some lessons have to be repeated, not surviving the fire test.
All in all, we get an opportunity to start fresh and clean up misconceptions, phobias and face our demons that didn’t kill us.
Those crazy words ‘If it doesn’t kill you, it will make you stronger’ have a new meaning. A fresh beat. A bounce comes back in the way we walk.
Bedrocks become the solid foundations rather than the tragic end.
Can a marriage be renewed after thirty five years, yes they can.
Is there a friend that is closer than a brother, yes there is.
Can we start that life long dream after so many failed attempts, yes they can.
The bedrock of conviction becomes a defining moment of truth that can withstand the greatest of storms.
Are you digging to find your bedrock and struggling to cope with your discoveries along they say?
Don’t despair, there truly is hope during this journey to the bedrock of conviction.
