And why that's always true!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.


I believe that’s as true for you as it is for me, because I believe it’s true for all of us!!!

And I believe it’s as true today as it will be tomorrow. And every day after that. And always!

Regardless of what you may be going through right now – good or bad. And no matter where you are right now – whether it be a dark place, an inspired bright place, or somewhere in between.

No matter what difficulties you may be facing, or even what joys and successes you may be enjoying. Still, and always, that truth is yours!


And I want you to know it, to believe it, and to remember it.

Because what I’ve learned is that when you allow yourself to fully embrace and commit to that truth, it will carry you and empower you and move you to live and act accordingly!

It will infuse you with passion, hope, strength, power (the good kind), love, joy, determination, gratitude, humility, light, and goodness!

It will push you to continuously move forward towards becoming your best self, realizing your dreams, and totally embodying what living your best life really means to you!

It will unlock everything you have within you that is 100% capable of fully realizing your dreams, fulfilling your infinite potential, and living your best life to the fullest; with never-ending improvement and growth, always taking you to the next level of your individual and unique journey!


And I know it’s easy to forget that truth, and even easier to just not believe it.

It’s easy when life sucks – when the possibility of things turning around or feeling anything even remotely inspiring, positive, or good seems utterly impossible and ludicrous.

And it’s easy when life is great – when the idea that things could get any better or that there’s anywhere else to go but down from that point seems completely arrogant or just like, “no one’s that lucky!” Or both.

But, when you do remember, and believe, and truly know in your heart of hearts that THE BEST IS YET TO COME, you will live and act accordingly!

So that when times are tough and when life does suck, that truth – with all its grace, hope, and beauty – will give you the very strength and resilience you need to get through those tough times. It will give you something to fight for, and it will give you the wisdom and insight to know how to learn and grow from those tough times in a way that will yield and lead to the only possible outcome of you actually manifesting that truth!

And when times are good, your belief in that truth will remind you to never become complacent, to never take anything or anyone for granted, to stay humble, to be grateful, and at the same time to continuously strive to achieve and become the next level of whatever that success, happiness, and fulfillment looks like for you.

But, if you don’t hold on to that belief and commit to it wholeheartedly, if you don’t remember that the best is yet to come, then you can be damn sure that the dark days will kill your dreams, your passion, and your hope; and that the good times will kill your hunger, your humility, your compassion, and your inner growth.

I believe, I know, and I refuse to forget that for all of us –


Believe, know, and refuse to forget with me!!!

As always, do more of what you love and be more of who you love!
