All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me…. You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
~ Walt Disney
Imagine if you got what you want, every time.
No struggle.. No hard work. No challenges. 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 can not GROW without struggle. You can not develop STRENGTH without resistance, without challenging yourself, without struggle. See PAIN as 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 this LIFE because you are strong enough to live 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 too. You are stronger than you think. Remember, consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.
~ Napoleon Hill
