Desirable Difficulties

difficulties

Conventional wisdom tells us that difficulty is something to be avoided – that it is a setback that leaves you worse off than you would be otherwise. But the reality is those difficulties often set us up for our biggest wins. David was small, with no military equipment or experience. But that “disadvantage” allowed him to outmaneuver the massively prepared Goliath. What if instead of avoiding your difficulty, you looked for how it may be opening the door to your greatest win.

Don’t chase the snake of revenge

revenge

If you feel like someone has done you wrong, don’t seek revenge – listen in. How often I see people chasing the snake and seeking revenge in their own lives.  The company folds or you just simply get laid off.  The immediate reaction may include anger, resentment, bitterness, and backstabbing.  These lead to discouragement, frustration, guilt and depression.  Be aware that all of these revenge focused reactions and feelings focus on the past.  Turning around and looking to the future opens up confidence, boldness, and enthusiasm.
