Pressure Makes Diamonds

Diamonds are rare to come by and are difficult to find. In most cases, it can even take decades to find a real diamond source. Derived from the Greek word Adamas meaning unconquerable or indestructible, diamonds have a reputation of withstanding the test of time.

Produced in the Earth’s mantle, the layer right before the core, diamonds are formed by tremendous heat and pressure and delivered to the Earth’s surface by deep source volcanic eruptions.

What I have come to learn, is that most people want diamonds, but don’t want the heat, the pressure or the eruptions that come along with getting them.

To create the life you want, you’re going to have to withstand the heat and the pressure that life throws your way. The pressure is just a challenge, and it can either serve as the beginning of a win or the beginning of a loss. You can perform better under pressure, but you have to have a mental edge to produce a winning edge.

A diamond life doesn’t come without eruptions, but the key to peak performance is having the mental capacity and stamina to adapt to any circumstances. Pull-on your skills and attributes. These will serve as your resources to win.

As you go through your week, remember, pressure can either burst pipes or create diamonds. What is the pressure you’re facing in your life going to create?
