In the film “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”, the lead character was a handsome, talented, and popular athlete who was on his way to fulfilling his Olympic dreams.
But one day, he shattered his leg in a motorcycle ride and everything he called “life” faded before his very eyes.
He eventually met a wise old man who helped him to re-define his life.
In one scene, the young athlete gets really flustered and says, “I can’t do this anymore. What’s the point when I can’t do what I love?”
His mentor said to him, “A peaceful warrior can’t always do what he loves, but he can always find a way to discover the love in what he does.”
That insight was the starting point of a phenomenal story of redemption, healing, and hope.
This once hopeless victim of tragedy was able to bounce back from adversity and create a life he never thought was possible.
We can do the same.
That’s today’s two cents.
