There are so many challenges involved in one lifetime. For the moment I want you to think about just Covid19 and how incredibly difficult it has been. In just this moment, how did you react by thinking of that challenge? Take some time to consider what emotions it conjured up.
The sheer volume of challenges in our life at any given moment is almost guaranteed. Without challenges we cannot grow. Essentially having challenges create resistance and by having resistance we are able to transform and grow to how we chose or desire.
If life was completely easy and we received everything we ever wanted and things were always ‘good’, that would mean that there would be no opportunity for growth and learning. No aspirations or inspiration as we would be in a constant state of contentment.
I know its sometimes hard to consider life’s trials with joy and viewing it as an opportunity of growth. However, if you reminisce on your past life challenges eg.
- Not getting that job you wanted,
- Receiving criticism,
- Losing money,
- Making mistakes,
- Not having enough money to pay the bills
The list is endless! I’m sure you can choose one.
Now think about how that challenge motivated you to get out of an undesirable situation, changed your perception on a topic or person, made you appreciative of the ‘good times’, helped you to transform or take one step closer towards your goals.
I know that what we’re all going through is uncomfortable and brings heaps of pressure, but just remember that for Soul growth and for you to achieve your greatest potential, you need to come out stronger from those challenges. I often like to remind myself of the concept: No challenge will come your way that you can’t handle.
