Thoughts about the lessons learned from difficult things we encounter…
“Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.”―Paulo Coelho
“Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.” ―Denis Waitley
“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” ―Eleanor Roosevelt
And my concluding thoughts…
Every problem is a chance for you to become a better version of yourself. Every challenge charts a path for growth and improvement.
Every setback carries the potential for powerful motivation. Every disappointment can lift you to a higher level of resolve.
Every inconvenience has the power to inspire new resourcefulness. Every frustration gives you a way to strengthen your patience.
From each positive experience, you learn a few things. From each negative experience, you learn much more.
Of course you would not intentionally seek to be hurt or disappointed. But neither would you want a life where hurt and disappointment never happen.
Difficult things can happen, do happen, and amazingly, life finds a way to make them beneficial. Difficult things can happen, and that’s what makes the good things so very good.
