Thinking Moment

Are you facing difficult times? Think of it this way: it's not trouble, it's growth!

There Is No Failure

If you knew then what you know now, would you have done things differently? You'd probably say yes. Honestly, I doubt it. Merely having knowledge would not change your ways. You must value that knowledge first. And what you value now might have meant nothing to you in the past. 

I can relate to that. I used to ignore the health aspect of my life, when I was younger. Then, some people I know became ill and, sadly, some of them died of illness. My attitude changed. Now, my family places a lot of importance in staying healthy.

Often, it requires some eye-opening jolt, perhaps a painful or tormenting situation, to make you change or affirm your values. Have you lost someone you love? Losing that someone can make you realize how valuable that person was to you. Rough times do that to you; they make you wonder what is truly important.

So, are you facing difficult times? Think of it this way: it's not trouble, it's growth! For example, you may have suffered losses in business, investments, or personal affairs. They're not really losses; they're tuition for your education. You have the choice to use that knowledge to move forward. That's because THERE IS NO FAILURE, ONLY FEEDBACK* (says Robert Allen). 

Take some Jim Rohn advice: Don't wish that it's easier; wish to be better. Don't wish for less problems; wish for more skills. Don't wish for less challenge; wish for more wisdom**. 

One more thing. You don't need a distressful experience to recognize what is truly important to you. You can make your choices now, no waiting required. 

But if you need reminders, just reflect on your recent past. Say, you just met someone, or witnessed an unusual event, or read a thought-provoking article (perhaps this one). Are these a calling for you to grow? Only you can find out.
