“That’s what friendships are there for – to propel each of us and together reach our fullest potential.”
Overcoming obstacles can be so tough at times, but I think doing it alone is almost even tougher! Community is one of God’s greatest gifts to us. Not only does lots of fun and excitement come from living in community, but these people cheer us on as we work to overcome our obstacles and reach our goals.
Progress in my life often looks like two steps forward and one step back. It’s a tough road and it usually includes setbacks! If we are on this journey alone, it’s easy to get discouraged or lose focus. But when we have friends and family walking this path next to us, we can be held accountable and encouraged!
“If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”
I have seen this verse and Nick’s awesome quote ring true in my own life. When I think about the time immediately after the shark incident, I am so incredibly thankful that I had a support system of community around me.
I had my fair share of discouraging moments, frustration, and tears. I needed people like my parents, Sarah Hill, or other friends and family to remind me in these situations that I could overcome.
When you’re feeling like life is hard, remind yourself:
“I don’t need easy, I just needed possible.”
Living Unstoppable does not mean living solo. We are all stronger when we do life with others! We celebrate each other’s joys and pick each other up when we face trials.
Who can you invite into your journey of living Unstoppable? Sometimes we need to put ourself out there to grow our community too! Who will spur you on, hold you accountable, and encourage you when the road gets hard? And the cool thing is, you get to do the same for them!
Here is a little call to action… do you need help? Be brave and reach out to someone today! Or who is in your life that needs a friend to support them right now? Can you be that friend and that encouragement? Helping others overcome obstacles can be just as rewarding as overcoming them ourselves!
For more encouragement on this, check out the course I created with my good friend Nick Vujicic called Overcome Your Obstacles! Nick was born without limbs and has spent much of his life overcoming. Now he is a professional speaker and NY Times Bestselling author! He has a fantastic perspective on overcoming obstacles.
I hope you enjoy watching the course as much as Nick and I enjoyed making it!
Now let’s grab a friend and start overcoming our obstacles!
P.S. I’ve also made 12 other courses with phenomenal guest speakers on topics that I feel are keys to an Unstoppable Life. Check them out here!
