I learned that even when you go through something bad in life, it doesn't define who you are. You can take that negative energy or event and channel it toward something more purposeful. Just because one door got shut doesn’t mean God wont open another. The world is full of opportunity. There are many situations when something doesn’t go the way someone plans it, but there is always an alternative. There are many situations as there are solutions. You can’t let one disappointment determine the rest of your life. One day you might want to play basketball but something happened, like an injury. Just because you are injured physically doesn’t mean you have to be hurt mentally. You can become a coach for many basketball teams. Many people think that when something in life goes wrong it’s OK give up . But, its never OK to walk away. Manhood Mindset helped me understand that people have to push through difficult moments with an open heart and mind. God put us on earth for a purpose, a prestigious reason. It may not be the reason you had thought, though it may be something much greater. I'll never forget this. Thank you.
