Push Into a New Level of Destiny
On a friend's Instagram account, he quoted a coach who said (paraphrased), "When you are struggling with some kind of trouble . . . keep this perspective: this trouble isn't going to stop you, it's going to push you into a level of your destiny you would have never experienced without it."
What is in your way right now? What is keeping you from achieving your fitness goals? Is it money? Schedule? Life demands?
Now ask yourself if this roadblock is real, or as powerful as you let it be?
On more than one occasion over the past few months, I've had external factors place definite roadblocks in my way to achieving my visions for helping others succeed. Each time, I've gone through a similar cycle of: anger, frustration, sadness, letting go, brainstorming alternatives, and then . . . and then . . . the clouds in my mind part and I can see things clearly again. Though now, after the struggle, the clarity is different: better somehow, more developed, closer to my heart.
So, instead of cursing the struggle, the trouble, the roadblock . . . consider thanking it for spurring you into action. For as I reflect on some of the challenges I've experienced over the past 3-4 months, how can I be anything but grateful that it has put me where I am today . . . in a much better place than where I was then.
