‘‘Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.”
We all have experienced times when we go through one bad thing after another. When it seems like the world is against us. At these times, we need to remember, someone else out there is feeling stressed too, wondering why they are struggling….we are not the only one.
Realising this helps us to get out of a self-victimising mindset. If we can turn it around and see it as ‘a lesson we need to learn‘, we become empowered.
Often we fail to realise that it is sadness and despair that can allow us to grow. Being comfortable with where you are at often does not motivate you to change or improve your situation. However, being ‘in a corner’ forces you to try to get out of it and take action.
Action creates empowerment. It brings possibilities. It creates results. By taking action, you are no longer a passive recipient. You are doing something to deal with it.
”Difficulties are opportunities to better things, they are stepping stones to greater experience. Perhaps some day you will be thankful for some temporary failure in a particular direction. When one door closes, another always opens, as a natural law it has to be, to balance.”
