Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They’re what make the instrument stretch-what make you go beyond the norm. ~ Cicely Tyson
Some days are just hard. There are cycles in organizations like life that are just difficult. Everything seems to be in retrograde. Storms WILL come. Struggle is part of the evolutionary process.
You stand knowing that no matter how great things maybe today, there will be some hurdle to overcome.
Where was the fantasy born that everyday would be filled with goodness and light…. That if times are difficult or challenging the we must be doing something wrong?
Just because you are struggling does NOT mean you are failing. Good things don’t come to those who wait. Good things come to those who work hard and struggle to pursue the goals and dreams they believe in.
The process has value. It helps prepares us for what’s next.
That hard space is a vital ingredient for innovation and a necessary step for growth.We as humans hate being uncomfortable or in pain, we hate not knowing or life being difficult.
Here is the simple truth: Struggle is ok…..stopping is not.
