Launch Into Greatness


For months, Leo experienced symptoms of a concussion. Forgetful with immense headaches and uncoordinated, life got hard. Doctors tried to diagnose and medicate him, but he knew it started after he banged his head at a party.

Symptoms subsided making Leo ready to be active. One afternoon, he joined his mates and got injured.

What am I going to do? Leo thought. How will my life get on track?

Experienced with medical mishaps and sensing Leo’s distress, his roommate asked, “What’s up with you?”

“I was ready to get on track and I got injured! How will I ever succeed?” Leo responded.

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So, when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great.” his roommate stated. “You don’t see the purpose now and you’re stronger with each challenge. Maybe you’re meant to be greater than you thought.”

 

Inspired by “An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So, when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great.” -Paul Coelho
