“Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times”. ~ G. Michael Hopf
Struggle is a blessing in disguise. Now, some will agree and some won’t. The path from struggle to success is multi-faceted. For now, here’s one important theme that helps along the journey: Perspective
People have a different definition to struggle. What is a struggle for one, may not be for another.
We know that even the smallest of activities requires struggle. Something we are doing now effortlessly was once a struggle. Struggle plays havoc with our happiness and well being.
Struggle is specific to everyone. But common struggle include loss of loved ones, health and illness issues, career and finance issues, personality and characters issues and the list goes on…
TURNING STRUGGLE INTO SUCCESS
Some struggle constantly through their lives and some convert struggle into success. The main ingredient is perspective. If we look closely, people who turn their struggle into success are the true example of human potential. There is not even a single creature on this planet who does not struggle. Even an ant struggles for daily food.
Imagine you always got what you wished for. No hard work. No struggle. No challenges. Some of you would say that will be great. But you would be weak. And when something hard comes into your life you wouldn’t know how to handle it.
If you rise from your struggle, you will generate the qualities of gratitude and compassion.
There was a time when struggle for me was a safe place to make excuses and to feel victimized. But nothing really great and worth happened to me.
But when we look at struggle as a process or a chain connecting to our goals, we will fall in love with growth. Everything has two sides. You can see the struggle as a place of comfort zone or an opportunity to grow.
CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS, AND THE THINGS YOU LOOK AT WILL CHANGE – WAYNE DYER
If you have made any progress in your life in any field… the smallest of progress also, this is because you have risen against something which was outside of your comfort zone at a time.
But if you look at those things now you can do it without even getting bothered. The path from struggle to success is marked with the footsteps of people who believed in something greater than themselves. Stepping way out of their tunnel vision, they find strength in what they may call God, consciousness, the Universe – whatever works for them.
Either you can see struggle as a gift or as an obstacle. Whatever you choose to see you have to struggle in both ways. But it's your choice to struggle getting more stronger to struggle to be in the victim zone.
Choose your struggle wisely!!
