We usually dislike challenging situations, conflict with others, struggle with our work or habits. Struggle sucks!
But what if it were a part of the training of life?
What if every conflict, failure, difficulty, hard emotion … were exactly the lesson we needed to learn? What if every challenging person and situation were our teacher?
Every day, ask yourself two simple questions:
- What was my biggest challenge today?
- What lesson was I supposed to learn from that?
Reflect on that. Jot it down, and internalize the lesson. Commit to practicing it.
Then thank your teacher.
