We created this necklace
to remind and encourage us that we can always find a solution, to whatever we
face in life.
The mantra tells us to
‘find a way’ - spurring us on to dig deep, keep going, stay focused - until we
find a solution. It encourages perseverance, resilience, determination,
problem-solving, and creative thinking.
We were inspired to use
this particular phrase, by the remarkable story of Diana Nyad, who swam 111
miles across shark-infested waters from Cuba to Florida. It was virtually
impossible, as the waters are dangerous, the distance is very long, and the
navigation incredibly hard. But Diana kept trying, from the age of 30.
She succeeded on her fifth attempt, at the age of 64! She was absolutely determined that one day, she
would find a way to succeed, so she never gave up trying. ‘Find a way’ became
her mantra for that last attempt.
This is such a great
example of persistence and determination, and the triumph of the human spirit
over adversity and challenge. It acts as an encouragement to us all, whether in
our business lives, our personal lives, or our emotional lives – to keep going,
to keep trying new approaches and making new attempts, until one day, we find a
way to succeed.
We decided to bring this
mantra to life using two crossed arrows, each pointing in a different
direction. An arrow signifies movement and direction; but having two arrows
crossed over reminds us that there isn’t only one way to do something, or one
path to follow. It is up to us to persevere, to keep trying, until we find the
right way for us.
Choose our ‘Find a Way’
necklace when you are facing tough times, or difficult circumstances; or you need
a dose of motivation and encouragement to keep on going, to keep on trying. It
is also a great mantra for life, as a philosophy to live your life by.
