“There is another person inside of you… one day in your life, you will face something that’s a lot tougher than you… (and) you will have to realize that there’s something inside of you that’s greater than anything life can throw at you.” – Inky Johnson 


I’ve had this fire inside of me for the longest time and nothing has ever or will ever put out the flames. I’ve found my other person (inner strength) and now I want to help others do the same.

Below is a video that I was lucky enough to make with my extremely talented friend Danny Gevirtz – I would highly recommend checking out his content.


Below is the video accompanied by the written version of the narration.

Without further adieu, here it is.



adversity is inevitable

but it’s not about the adversity you face

it’s about how you face the adversity.

you see, every morning you get up you have a choice:

you can either choose to go with the flow and do what’s easy, OR,

you can seek discomfort, embrace struggle and challenge yourself

because it’s how you handle the little things that will determine how you handle the big things

its the minor moments that determine the greater picture

learn to love the discomfort

channel your inner strength and dig deep

discover the person who’s ready to grind through anything

because one day, you WILL GET KNOCKED DOWN

do what’s hard today so when that day comes you’ll have the strength to get back up

struggle is the stimulus for strength and

adversity is the opportunity for growth

I know what it feels like to have life punch you in the face

I’ve been losing my vision since I was 10 years old and there’s not much I can do about it

my vision is out of my control, and its REALLY HARD

but it will NEVER stop me

you see, whatever it is that YOU are going through, it’s a blessing IF YOU CHOOSE to see it that way

know that whatever it is your facing, it’s bigger than you

you were put on this earth to make a difference in the lives of others.

so handle your circumstances with grace

control what you can

be relentless

be resilient

and be strong

for you and for others

today and every day

dig down deep and find that other person


From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you so much for reading and watching. I hope that the video was worthwhile and the message was meaningful. I’ll end this blog with how the video began.

“adversity is inevitable, but it’s not about the adversity you face, it’s about how you face the adversity.”

There will be ups and downs. There are good times and tough times. But, no matter how hard life gets, just know that we all have that other person inside of us – an inner strength that can overcome anything and everything that life throws at us. Choose to be strong, choose to be resilient and always remember, it’s bigger than you. 

Thank you again for watching and reading! I hope that you’ll take the time to share these words, the video or the message behind them with anybody and everybody that you think needs to hear them.

Dig down deep.
