Be Thankful for the Growing Pains
Ask anyone that has ever reached success doing what they love if they ever encountered growing pains. Without hesitation they will tell you that they have. Not only once, but countless times along their path to greatness. Be thankful for the growing pains.
Pushing through the growing pains with your dream requires true grit. You are determined enough to doing what must be done by having grit.
What do you do if you face uncertainty?
Do it anyway. Pursuing your goals requires a backbone. If you didn’t have one to begin with you will soon develop one. This is only true if you stick with it though.
Learn to become disciplined when it comes to facing adversity with your dream. Think of it as a challenge. It is a test to see if you will move on to the winning circle. You start off in Round 1 and then move on to other rounds each time that you push through.
It may sound silly to think about expressing gratitude, but it is necessary if you want it to become a reality. Going through the hard stuff is part of the process.
Sometimes things happen that make you question what you are doing with your goals and dreams. However, if you don’t go through the hard times you will never get to the good. The hard things are what will season you along your journey.
They are mini-tests to see if you can endure and overcome them. You will be a better person for it in the long run.
Think back to a time that you handled a difficult situation with your goals. Did it make you feel like quitting? It is normal to experience self-doubt and uncertainty, but only for a little bit.
How do you switch your mindset to that of a more thankful one? Start by appreciating where you are now.
Make a list of your achievements. Compare it to your list of your doubts.
Now which list is going to get you closer to your success?
