MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.” –Bob Marley
Hi, welcome to Minute with Maxwell. I have a statement of strength today that I hope lifts and encourages you. My name's John.
Bob Marley said this, ‘You never know how strong you are until strong is the only choice.’ You see, when we're in a crisis, what happens is the deeper the crisis gets, the less options you and I have. Now, we love freedom and we love options. You don't know anybody that loves options more than me. But for example, with the Coronavirus. As we have been trying to stop this virus, to contain it, we almost daily have less options and more options are taken from us. We have less options every day. Now that's huge because as we have our options begin to lessen in our life, that's hard on us. Because you see, when we have options, we can constantly ask ourselves, is there a better way? Is there an easier way? Is there a different way? But, Bob Marley says, the easier way doesn't make us stronger. So, he says, when we are in adversity and a crisis, as we get those options taken away, what we find is that the only choice we have is to be strong. Some of us have to be forced to be a big boy and a big girl, and the only way that happens is no longer have a way to escape or to leave this difficult time.
So, if you're running out of options, it's okay. Because now you're going to find a strength within you that you didn't even know you possessed. Trust me, it's there. It's just never been called on because there were a few options in your life. Bob Marley, you were right. Thanks for helping us.
I'm glad you were with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
