How To Grow Through Challenging Times
Be honest with yourself through these questions:
Are you going through your challenge? Or are you growing through it?
Are you learning anything from it, or are you doing it over and over again?
Knowing how to grow through challenges is one of the MOST important lessons in life. Insanity they say is “doing the same thing the same way and expecting a different outcome.” Until you handle your challenge with grace, it will stay in your face. Everything has a beginning and an end. Expect things to get better for you because they will. Life is cyclic. Whatever experience you are having now, it did not come to stay, it has come to pass. It only stays as long as you allow it to stay. Think of challenging times as a host and a guest. The guest can only stay for as long as the host allows them to stay. You are the host; the challenge is the guest. Remember that you have been through other challenges in the past. And you now refer to them as “I used to …” “I went through … last year. It’s all now in the past. So, whatever experience you are having now that might seem so big and might seem as though it will never pass, it will. Just like the other challenges did, this one will too. It’s just a matter of time. So, instead of you lamenting about it, I will encourage you to grow through it. Learn all you can from it while you grow through it.
Someone once said, “When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Gets Going”. You are tough, so keep going. Don’t stop. Don’t give in, don’t give up. Just keep going believing there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Nothing is permanent. It’s just a matter of time. Someone once said, “life is like an onion, you have to peel it one layer at a time, and sometimes you cry.” Life will happen to you when you have a dream. People will disappointment you, people will walk away from your life, people will lie to you, people will try to outsmart you, cheat you, steal from you, people will call you what you are not. It’s called life. It happens to everybody. You don’t need to stop being you, just because someone is being them. That’s who they are, that’s not who you are. Let them be them, and you be you. It’s as simple as that. Let nothing stop you from pursuing your dream. Your dream was given to you for you to make it a reality. Don’t let it die in your heart. Let’s co-create the life you’ve always dreamed of by helping you bring your dream into reality!
