Unbroken; 47 days on the boat, tortured for another year (blind faith).
Spend time getting the perspective of life; not the last 24 hours (most people get bad emotions over a rain shower) instead of the last 2400 years. Go to some poor countries, you’ll see how well you’re doing. Realize that what you feel is a nightmare storm is just a little bump in the road.
We keep hitting the wall, in the same way, most people don’t like their lives, but they still do their routines and keep getting them the outcome they don’t want.
“Realize that you hit the wall and only innovation will get you through; where there’s a will, there’s a way.” There’s almost always 5 ways to get through.

The second you break down one wall, another one will be waiting, always. Learn to start loving these walls like parkour people, make it beautiful by perfecting your life, so it becomes your story. If there weren’t any obstacles, there would be no story, and he could not change lives.
