“Most of life’s battles are fought inside ourselves, and our greatest periods of growth usually come during crises”
It’s no secret, things change. Relationships change. Family life change. Your own life will experience changes but how you handle those changes depends on you. What is fine today is foolishness tomorrow. Take a moment to consider what changes are necessary in your life. It becomes naturally obvious to the most casual observer that we better be prepared to handle change. Put the ‘blame game’ away
If you try to manage change the same way you have managed a stable routine situation, you are going to have real problems. You need to recognize that changes are usually under managed—even simple changes. People rely too much on their old habits. It is not easy but change is necessary.
When we decide to change, we usually jump in with both feet, excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. When change is forced upon us, we rebel. We look for every reason that change imposed will not work but often we lie to ourselves knowing that at times the change is needed. What could happen if we learned to embrace change as a normal part of our lives and did not fight with ourselves over it? Is not it really our own perception of change that either holds us back or propels us forward?
There is a time for everything so learning to manage yourself. Manage your work, school, relationship, friendship, spare time etc. Do not make your personal comfort your primary goal. Yes, things will change in your life. Yes, you will hurt sometimes. Yes, you will suffer physical, emotional, and sacred storms. However, in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. Start thriving in the midst of your crisis. Soon your crisis will be history and you will enter into a time of new joy.
You can overcome your crisis. Be creative. Be innovative. A crisis can bring out your potential in any situation.
“I really do think that any deep crisis is an opportunity to make your life extraordinary in some way.”
