Diamond Nugget: “In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” ~ Albert Camus

There will be periods of harshness in most of our lives, similar to the coldest of wintery days. The difficulties of life snatch our warm breath of joy, pelting us with icicles of pain, doubt and despair. It is at times like these that we ought to:

Follow Albert Camus’ example and draw on the invincible summer of hope, determination and belief residing deep within us

 Find that true purpose that will gives us the strength to press through our troubles

 Connect with mentors who will show us ways to get beyond certain obstacles that we may not know how to overcome

It is in recalling the passionate, sparkling seasons of our lives that we may see beyond the lackluster travails we encounter….finding our invincible summer in winter.

Pick up a copy of the Diamond Cutters book to learn how to find your purpose.
