Success Lies in the Struggle
One of my favorite stories to tell when I teach is about butterflies.
When a butterfly is changing and emerging from the cocoon, it struggles. It must really fight its way out. And it needs that struggle to grow strong enough to fly.
In fact, if we were to see the butterfly struggling and they and help it, it would soon die because it would not have created the needed strength in its wings to be able to fly.
We are the same. We try to avoid the struggles, the pain, the hardships. We need to remember we need them. We need to acknowledge that Success lies in our struggles.
So, this week if you are struggling, don't fight it, but rather embrace that struggle. Learn from it. Grow from it and know that those struggles, even though uncomfortable, are teaching you how to fly.
