Make It Happen Mondays: Difficulties Mastered are Opportunities Won
Any obstacle can be viewed as a blessing, if you look at it the right way. Take for instance, triathletes. Theirs is a sport whose participants boast the best bodies built for endurance, strength and speed.
Before they reach that peak of human physique though, they’d have to train for a year. That’s roughly a year of running, biking and swimming – and every month, their time to complete a distance shortens. Imagine the kind of mental toughness and determination they have to endure such a rough sport.
But how does this reward them?
They get to compete in one of the most grueling sports in history. They get the best bodies and metabolism most individuals only dream of having. And, most probably, the live longer.
So if you’re faced with a difficulty in reaching your goal, look at the value it is teaching you. Whether you scale or break that wall, either way, you get to be stronger – and that strength will be useful, moving forward.
