I got ten years to fill the stadium, but only two minutes to fill your cranium. Humble the Poet. Signin’ in.
We’ve all been through tough times, and if we haven’t been through tough times, I promise you, you will go through tough times. Even if you have gone through tough times, I promise you, you’ll probably go through a couple of more tough times. That’s what life is.
Life is a struggle. It’s a challenge. And as my friend reminded me yesterday, life doesn’t get easier, we just get stronger. When we want to deal with how do I get over or overcome these hard times, we don’t. We go through these tough times so we can strengthen ourselves. Every struggle is an opportunity for us to improve as an individual, learn new skill sets so we can have a brighter future.
Now if we tried our best to avoid every tough challenge that we have in life then we’re not going to develop as individuals to our potential. If anything, we’ll actually get weaker and we’ll become more and more accustomed to being in our comfort zone and we’ll get more and more afraid of any opportunity that we have to grow because it’s going to require us to be a little bit uncomfortable.
When we think about challenges in our lives, think about these as great opportunities for us to be better and not look at it as something that we need to avoid. We don’t need to get over tough times. We don’t need to get through tough times. These tough times are life. Life is never going to be smooth sailing. If it was smooth sailing, you’d get very bored. Trust your struggles and trust them enough that they will make you a better person. It’s up to you to find the lessons and the wisdom within them.
