Desperation Can Be A Powerful Motivator

A reader recently commented about their desire to break away from the chains that were holding them back.

I thought some of you might be interested in reading my reply. I’m sharing it in the hope that it might inspire those who are in a similar situation to break free from their chains:

“I was in a similar situation a while back. For me it felt increasingly like being trapped in a small airtight box. I didn’t know what would happen if I escaped from it, but the more I felt like I was suffocating, the more desperate I became to break out. So, while it did take courage too, desperation was a powerful motivator. May you use your key and find the wondrous freedom I found on the other side of the lock.”

Love,
Russ

    yes, most of our boxes are designed and built personally.

  2. The sooner you break free the better the less heavy the weight of the world feels on your back. I know it is a cliche but it is true.
