You Discover Yourself In Your Difficulties

discover yourself

Our Problems and challenges are paradoxically our gateways to becoming more evolved and mature in our life.

When our sense of life is pleasant, we are not naturally motivated to invest our time in finding the deeper essence of who we are.

When the going is good in our lives, we are busy making plans. That holiday I want to go on. That branded car I want to buy. That property I want to invest in etc. Our focus is on sensory experiences to satisfy our Ego.

However, when we get too much in the rut of this sensory pleasure zone, at some point, it starts gnawing at our soul. We start feeling uncomfortable. “What am I doing with my life?”

And from this point of discomfort emerges our desire to figure out something about ourselves. 

In contrast, when you go through your challenges, you naturally discover that which is strong and beautiful in you.

Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body


Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors

African Proverb

Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging

Joseph Campbell

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me, there lay an invincible summer.

Albert Camus

If it doesn’t challenge you, it does not change you
