You will find a way

Regarding the challenge(s) you’re going through:

You do not need to have the answers right now.

In fact, no one has all the answers.

The more useful expectation to have is that you will eventually find a way forward.

The idea of believing in yourself gets a bad rap sometimes — it can feel hand-wavy and immaterial.

But the reality is it sets forth an important cadence of interactions:

If you believe in your ability to solve a problem, you will keep chipping away at that problem.

You will be tenacious because you’re hopeful and determined which collectively make you far less likely to walk away.

Rejection and failure transmorph into redirection and valuable lessons.

Attitude isn’t everything, but it’s a lot of things.

Maintaining your belief in your ability to accomplish what you set out to do — especially when things get tough — goes a long away.
