By John Stuckenschneider, Life Success Coach
The fact that you are even reading this tells me a lot about you. You aren’t just “curious” as to how to improve your life. You are actually “committed” to discovering ways to become the very best “you” possible.
Becoming the best won’t happen without you being tested. Without something to stretch us beyond our comfort zones, nothing changes. So, how do we become “stretched” beyond those comfort zones? Through trials of life. The bigger the trial, the more dramatic the change in us and the growth that we experience.
I said all of that to make a point that I hope will not only resonate with you, but will inspire you as well. If you are in the trenches of life, then rejoice!
Rejoice because you've been counted worthy and strong enough by God (or the Universe if you prefer) to go through what you’re experiencing and GROW THROUGH THE PROCESS!
If, for example, you’ve stepped out and decided to “go for your dream” and you are now “neck deep” in the struggle and really can’t see your way out, then rejoice! You are EXACTLY WHERE EVERY OTHER ENTREPRENEUR BEFORE YOU HAS FOUND THEMSELVES.
Realize that it's literally IMPOSSIBLE to do something extraordinary without extraordinary effort AND extraordinary opposition coming at you almost every step of the way. There are no overnite successes. Just ask those labeled as such.
If you have made the decision to step out and follow your passion and your dream, then I salute you.
You have made the decision NOT to follow along with the masses, the drones and those who’ve decided that “mediocrity” is an acceptable way of life for them. You understand that ANYTHING worthwhile comes with a price. You know that success is a process and not a destination.
You are amazing! You've decided to step out and navigate waters that only about 5% of the earth’s population ever have the guts to step out into.
What makes you different? It's your willpower. It’s your mindset. You, along with every great entrepreneurial success story in history, REFUSE to give up or give in.
You are taking the same stand as the great Winston Churchill. You will never, never, never, ever give up. You’ll burn bridges and remove all paths of retreat to your destiny. You refuse to turn back. You’ll succeed or you’ll die, for these are your only options.
So, be encouraged. If you’re in the trenches, then rejoice. You’re not only where you must be to grow. You are where you must be to succeed.
One of my mentors used to tell me that true positive thinking isn't believing that things will get better. True positive thinking is believing that what you're going through IS the very best for your personal growth and development.
