“Your Temporary Circumstances Don’t Have to Become Your Permanent Identity”

One of my favorite things to do when my mind isn’t feeling well is watch videos on the SoulPancake YouTube Channel.

One day, someone shared what is still one of my favorites, A Pep Talk from Kid President, and then I saw My Last Days: Meet Zach Sobiech (warning, you WILL need tissues), and I was hooked. SoulPancake became the second YouTube channel I subscribed to, and one of only three that I watch regularly.

Well, it’s been a bit of a rough year mentally, and I needed a pick me up. So I wandered over to the channel and happened upon this video with a great perspective on life from entrepreneur, Greg Hartle.

Hope you enjoy it and take as much from it as I did. The transcript is below the video.

Your temporary circumstances do not have to become your permanent reality.

All of us have challenges and problems, but in almost all circumstances they’re temporary. But somehow, they get so infested in us that we think they’re permanent.

We’re not out of money, instead somehow we become poor.

We’re not experiencing a health challenge; somehow we become sick.

And we continue to turn temporary things into permanent things that prevent us from experiencing the life we really want to experience, and growing the way we really want to grow, and doing the things we really want to do.

And I know it’s hard. And I know you’re going to experience pain.

But you’re also going to experience joy, and excitement, and happiness.

We look at all those things and we think about them at the top, but it’s just one thing changing at a time. It’s looking at our current circumstances and becoming resourceful enough, and creative enough, and skilled enough, to make one change at a time.

One single change, that’s all you’ve gotta do.

The human heart beats 4000 times per hour. And every single beat, every single palpitation, every single one is a reminder to you: that you are still alive.

Live like it.
