It takes roots to weather the storm.

“It takes Roots to weather the storm” or “Storms make trees take deeper Roots” I believe in both the references. Let’s discuss
Life is a series of peaks and valleys. Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down. I’m a firm believer that it’s how you respond in your moments of difficulties that really defines the type of person you are. You really don’t know what you are capable of until you have to do it. When you have a storm coming you try to prepare the best you can.
Lately, the world seems to be lurching from one crisis to another. We have experienced a global pandemic, dramatic changes to how we conduct our daily lives, economic uncertainty, and political and social turmoil, as well as an array of natural disasters. Then there are personal traumas that we all go through. For many us, this is a time of unprecedented struggle and upheaval. While there’s no way to avoid sorrow, adversity, or distress in life, there are ways to help smooth the rough waters and regain a sense of control.
Why do some people seem to be better able to cope in these troubling times than others? While everyone’s situation is different, it is true that people with strong will power tend to have a higher tolerance for the distress generated by hard times. Some trees cannot fight the massive storms thrown on them because their roots are not as stronger as the roots of trees who are able to survive the storm.
Last night I was reading about Dr A. P. J Abdul Kalam the former President of India and the Missile Man of India. His life is such a admiring story that shows the circumstances are not a barrier in the road to success but can be broken with firm determination and passion for achieving the aim. He is the man who very well describe that it takes roots to weather the storm. Born in a family where their financial conditions were not good, having bought up with seven siblings he always faced a lot of pressure. However the journey of rough and tough had never been a barrier to his path. He stood strong and determined to his goals. It is evident from his struggles that will power, hard word and determination are the deeper roots that helps stand the storm.
The book titled “The test of My Life” is a story of Cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s journey from cricket to cancer to back to cricket. It is about the toughest day of his life and how he managed to come out of it. The hope, determination and courage to face the challenges kept him strong despite the odds. It is not just about his triumphs but one of the most biggest setbacks and his comeback from life threatening disease that could have ended his career. His personal life and his struggle with the dreaded disease is an inspiration for all of us.
The reality is that at some point in life, we all go through struggle. But we choose how we respond to it. We have the power to build an unstoppable attitude and mindset to it. You cannot forever escape from the storm; you must learn to stand up to it for when you panic when the storm comes, you increase the power of the storm. Dig up deep & pull the roots of confidence and positive attitude
from the ground of your being, stand firm in the raging storm because it takes roots of willpower and positive attitude to weather the Storm.
