What if each time you felt uncomfortable, challenged or pressured, you, instead, started to look at the situation as the launching pad for something big? What if you could embrace a challenge while you are going through it because you truly believe it is helping you get to a greater place?
Let’s be real. Usually, until we feel completely uncomfortable or frustrated, we don’t initiate a change. We hear amazing stories of people who hit rock bottom, lose it all and turn their life into a beautiful story that inspires others. It took a huge problem to catapult a transformation and that rock bottom was so uncomfortable it changed one person’s life and created a story that encouraged others to do the same. When things are just fine, we may not be doing our very best or being our happiest, but things are adequate so we continue on. When something breaks, it is frustrating and challenging, but the experience forces us to discover another way.
When you look back in the rearview mirror, see that challenging time as a blessing. Capture the moment and embrace the joy of your growth during challenges.
Whether you are uncomfortable with the new normal of a love relationship in your life, a challenging new job or new responsibilities, conquering the largest speaking engagement that you have ever had, or taking a failing company and turning it around, embrace the discomfort that comes with it, keep going and create a greater opportunity on the other side.
Why wait to see the gift in the rearview mirror? It is here now.
