It's tough to look at a list of problems and feel a sense of excitement or even a sense of contentment. But is there another way to look at them?
Have you ever heard the phrase, 'life is a marathon, not a sprint'? If you've heard it before or are hearing it for the first time, do you agree with it? Personally, I disagree... Think about it, life doesn’t happen at a slow and steady pace - especially if we are pursing something big and meaningful. A life of purpose requires a faster pace, and if we try to live life as a marathon at the pace required, we won't be able to handle it physically, emotionally or mentally. Now let’s dig a little deeper and start recalibrating to a sprinters pace and accelerate our path to our personal vision of success.
Why do some people go through extremely difficult events and come through better and stronger than ever, while others do not? What is it that makes them different? What is it that makes them so... resilient?
... when it comes to the higher stakes experiences in life, how often do things go to plan? It's at these times when, after getting punched in the face, the autopilot for 'the plan' gets turned off. You must have the strength of mind to keep the goal line in your sights and press forward.
