Savor the darkest moment.
There’s a saying that the darkest hour is just before the dawn. This is not true. You can see it if you work outside at night or walk around outside before the dawn. But it is true that even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. This is how this world works. Until the sun ages and eventually explodes — billions of years later from now.
Our life goes the same way. While we can’t avoid having the darkest moment in our life, the sun — no matter what it represents in your life — will rise. Until we finish our life. It’s not billions of years later, but still can be long enough to do something meaningful.
Even in the darkest moment, we always have something to learn and can grow further. The same applies to a business; not a few companies were founded during a recession or depression, and they build a strong foundation of future growth during the period.
It’s not a matter of how we can avoid the darkest moment. What matters is what we learn during the moment and how we use our experience.
