I. We Move Forward With It
Grief is not an emotion to move on from.
It’s a reality to move forward with.
Coping is not about forgetting those we love.
It’s about finding ways to keep their memory alive.
We pay respects by leading a life that honors their legacy.

II. Discipline Equals Freedom
People look for the shortcut. The hack. And if you came here looking for that:
You won’t find it.
The shortcut is a lie.
The hack doesn’t get you there.
And if you want to take the easy road, it won’t take you to where you want to be:
Reaching goals, overcoming obstacles, and becoming the best version of yourself will not happen by itself.
It will not happen by cutting corners, taking shortcuts, or looking for the easy way.
There is no easy way. There is only one way — the way of discipline.

III. Keep Showing Up
Life doesn’t demand perfection.
It doesn’t require you to be constantly fearless, confident, or self-assured.
It simply requires that you keep showing up.
