The Benefit of Suffering
You wouldn’t change anything or grow if you were happy with how things are.
Adversity fosters growth.
I don’t know about you, but one of the greatest satisfactions I can have is knowing I overcame a difficult problem.
It’s satisfying to realize that you are now equipped to handle situations that were once stressful, with greater ease.
That ease comes from having done it before, and often, the more difficult the situation, the greater confidence you will gain from overcoming it.
My accountant shared a surprising observation with me recently. He’s 90 years old, a multimillionaire and always filled with sage-like advice.
“When business owners are asked their most significant business accomplishments to date, they usually list their most difficult achievements first and rate them as being more important. The successes that comes easier, has a tendency to be ranked lower in consequence.”
-Stanley Howard Diamond
As I explained last week, we are currently experiencing the environmental transition from winter into spring, so it’s natural to feel edgy and/or overwhelmed right now. As the added sunlight stimulates the cells, which motivate growth in nature, you may get the itch to make a change in your life or grow. This may show up in the form of frustration or anger about how something isn’t working right now.
So, if this is resonating with you right now, you are in synch with the seasonal shift that is occurring, and you are being presented with an opportunity to change something for the better in your life.
The short and easy exercise in the exercise below, helps you calm down, so you can think more clearly, and give yourself the head space to plan.
This season is the ideal time to plant seeds for a future harvest, to look ahead, make new plans, formulate new ideas, make decisions, and determine your direction for the upcoming year and ultimately, to take action!
As you know, I have been working hard to get my Vision Board Online Class ready for you. Previously, this workshop was only available LIVE in my studio.
