“Sometimes Life is Going to Hit You in the Head with a Brick”

Some people loved him… Some people hated him. No matter what your thoughts were on the man, his life changed the way that many of us live today.

When he spoke, there was a profound wisdom that can be found nestled in his words. He understood much more than gigabytes and computer programming. In fact, if we listen to his words, they have power to change the way that we live.

This short video is filled with wisdom. My favorite line is:

“Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”

We are all going to face tough times. We are all going to face difficulties. It is not these tough times or difficulties that define us… but our response to these things. 

Maybe you have faced difficulty recently. Maybe you are facing it right now. I want you to know that, sometimes, losing everything can be the best thing that ever happened to you. Let me leave you with another quote from the video:

“The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.” 

Try to picture this difficult moment as a new possibility… a new journey… an incredible opportunity.

Maybe that brick that hit you really just knocked some sense into you.
