As 19th century poet William Ernest Henley wrote, “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.”

How strong is your resolve? When William Henley was young he was diagnosed with tuberculosis of the bone, which led to the amputation of his left leg below the knee. He was told that his other leg would have to be amputated but didn’t accept that fate. Instead, he sought out an innovative treatment involving a series of surgeries and a two-year recovery that saved his leg. His unconquerable strength is reflected in his poem “Invictus” and has inspired many around the world from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela. Like Henley, be the captain of your soul. Live an intentional and courageous life. Instead of simply going where the wind is blowing, set a deliberate destination and be confident in your decisions. Don’t succumb to perceived limitations. Face adversity head on and let your intuition steer your course. Know that you have an innate indomitable spirit to not only survive, but thrive.

Until next time, remember-it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,
