Struggles, challenges and hard times offer you much more value than any other time in your life. You can not grow without struggle. You can not get STRONGER without resistance. Think about a time in your life that may have been hard, but forced you to become better. Get grateful for the struggles and WORK on yourself to ensure your future has much more PLEASURE than PAIN.
Imagine if you got what you want, every time.
No hard work.
No hard work required.
Some of you are saying… that would be great…
You would be weak!
And then, when something hard comes up in your life, you wouldn’t know how to handle it, because you have never gone through anything that strengthens you.
You cannot GROW
You can not develop STRENGTH without resistance, without challenging yourself, without struggle.
PAIN is your friend.
Maybe not in the moment.
But for the evolution of your soul, for the long term benefit of you as a stronger human being – pain IS YOUR FRIEND.
If you didn’t have failures,
If you didn’t have struggles,
If you didn’t have disappointment,
You could have no strength, no courage, no compassion.
How could you?
Those qualities are MADE from your pain and struggle.
You were given pain because you are strong enough to handle it.
You were given this LIFE because you are strong enough to live it.
Because you are strong enough to drive through it
To THRIVE THROUGH IT.
To inspire others through it.
They will look to you and say:
He did it,
She did it,
I have the strength to do it to.
You are stronger than you think.
You’ve survived all your challenges to this point
And you will survive whatever is coming.
But next time a struggle comes
I don’t want you to curse the skies.
Know that it was sent for a reason and a lesson.
It might be to make you stronger, it might be to teach you patience, it might be for you to show others your spirit, there is a reason.
So don’t you give up.
You have a purpose in this world.
And you will only find it if you keep going and keep GROWING.
You cannot GROW without STRUGGLE, without CHALLENGES
