We've been doing this for three-and-a-half years and we've fed just over a million people worldwide. They could have stopped us a long time ago and they didn't.

In fact, strive to create community wherever you are, and build confidence in yourself and the people around you while you're at it. Yes, tragedy comes, and nothing I say will ever diminish its magnitude, but even more powerful is the experience of restoration – the mountaintop after the experience of tragedy. If you are in the midst of tragedy, remember that restoration will eventually come. The anxiety that comes from worry doesn't bring success into your life any faster. Fear be still, bravery come near.feedback

Anticipating what will happen in the future is a strength that can be developed, and it will help you take the first step when you experience the fear of uncertainty. And vision is what will keep you moving forward regardless of your fears. In whatever you do, anticipation and vision are both necessary ingredients to fight the fear of uncertainty. My life didn't go exactly as planned and I'm sure yours hasn't either. Even if you have already built a plan for your life, you can't see the future. You can try to predict it all you want, but there are just some things outside of your control.feedback

That said, it's a great practice to identify the things you can control in your bravery journey and to focus on them. This will allow you to stop focusing on the life happenings you have no control over. If we devote every ounce of passion to our lives, then we are living life in the way it was meant to be live. Yes, rejection will come, even when we find passion and put in the work, but we should be most satisfied with giving life our all.feedback

Worrying about change ahead does nothing but rob us of the present joy we could and should be experiencing. Yes, life is ever-evolving, so we do need to prepare for the future, but this should also remind us of the need to take life as it comes, one day at a time. Honestly, I like being in control when I can be, and I do believe that there are key areas of life that we can and should control, like our schedules, our self-perception and the words we speak. But as good as controlling our lives sounds, there are some things in life that are outside our control.feedback
