Ships don’t sink because of the water around them.
They sink because of the water that gets in them.
We’re all surrounded by problems.
There are lots of things to be afraid of.
Your circumstances may not be ideal.
And life may seem stormy.
But you’re not defeated by what goes on around you.
You’re defeated when you let it get inside of you.
I’ve met a lot of people who were incredibly successful despite unfortunate upbringings.
And there are many who seem to thrive in the midst of chaos.
They are resilient.
They are able to forgive.
They are virtually unsinkable.
You can be too.
