Today I share a S.O.L. Story that’ll give you new perspective on what to do when you feel overwhelmed, scared, and want to give up.

Is it surrender or giving up? Surrender or defeat? Surrender or quitting?

They may look the same from the outside, but are very different on the inside.

And they have completely different outcomes.

Surrender is letting go of what you’re resisting. It’s letting go of the struggle. 

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Where is it time for you to get your hands up?

Be encouraged. You’re not alone.

There’s a power within you that’s greater than the power without you.
