Do You Really Want to Just Get Through Life?
I used to hate it when it obstacles got in my way in my life. Challenging situations were annoying and made me angry at best, and it felt like I was just trying to get through life. But now I see that every obstacle I faced in my life was there for me to learn from and to make me stronger and more in control of the essence of me.
Learn From Challenging Situations
The fastest way to become the master of your thoughts, emotions, and life is through challenging situations. When your life is sailing smoothly along, you don’t have the opportunities to sharpen your power inside and really understand what works for you and what doesn’t.
Challenging situations help you become stronger both mentally and physically.
The trick is to push through the challenging times – not to let them get the better of you or view them as something you have to get through. They should be something that you conquer and learn from for many reasons; one reason being that if you don’t learn from them then you may repeat the unwanted challenge over and over again.
A good example of this, in my life, was dating. Oh, dating was a challenging time in my life. I would date a loser and then of course face many challenging times and obstacles on my way to happiness with a relationship. I dated guys who:
- Used me for money
- Did drugs
- Disappeared for days on end
- Treated me poorly
- Lied to me
And on and on the list goes.
At the time I thought that the anger, hurt, and confusion was just life – and I did my best to get through life like everyone else seemed to.
But one day I woke up and understood that each one of those guys (lessons) taught me something – and thankfully I started to learn from them and incorporate a mind-set into my life that allowed me to seek out a relationship that truly made me happy. I didn’t just get through dating being unhappy; I took the lessons and learned from them and MADE my dating life happy!
Unfortunately, I see a lot of people who keep making the same mistakes over and over. For example, they want to manifest the perfect guy into their life but they keep dating losers over and over again. This is because they haven’t learned from their challenges in life – they haven’t grown stronger from them, they have instead let these challenges beat them down or keep them where they are and they are in the mind-set that they just have to get through life this way because that’s the way it is.
Again…the trick is to learn the lesson, and then take what you learned and grow stronger from it! It works for everything in life.
So appreciate obstacles and challenges when they come up. They are there to help your personal growth of the mind, body, and soul. They are there to make you stronger in life. They are there to help you get what you want in life. The more challenges you have in life, the more you grow!
