“The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.” –Chinese proverb
You are not the only one who wouldn’t mind having a straight line to progress. We all may have fallen to that emotion of wanting that straight path to our progress at some point. No one wants to struggle and nothing is wrong with that but as Frederick Douglass have stated, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
In life, we are going to have ups and downs.
“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.” -Paulo Coelho
We all love the good times, the up times when things are going smooth, but it is not going to be like that. It’s not all bad though when it’s not. This is life and I once heard that life is not easy. But if you are serious about your personal growth or reaching your goal you too will find in you, your elixir that will help you to go the extra mile. You too are able to turn your problem into possibilities. In fact, in our downs we really see what we are made of and to enumerate, we have the power to create a life of significance. What our downs help us to do is form new perspectives, find better ways, that sometimes surprise us at times.
Not because the plan didn’t take you there as pointed out means you can’t get there. Try another plan if you have to but don’t stop.
Don’t lose sight of your why, it will become very useful in the moments when you feel like you are in the valley.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
