Trust Your Struggle the Transformation Will Come

If your path is more difficult it is because your calling is higher

Everyone Struggles

When you think about it, the toughest parts of life lead to massive transformation which really is a good thing. A seed buried in the ground has to break out of its coat to give birth to a plant, a chick has to break from its shell and then fail multiple times to actually be able to fly.

A turtle hatchling has to crawl its way home into the ocean and even after it reaches the waters it has to survive from being an easy prey for a bunch of predators. As humans, we too spend our time learning to crawl and toddle before we walk.

Life gives us many opportunities to work on what you lack but if you stay in the comfort zone aka the voice that tells you to wait it out, nothing is going to change. You need to now take that beautiful ass of yours and start crawling, just how you did when you were a baby.

If you want to make any kind of progress through a phase that has you stuck or swamped, start crawling. If you have it in you to take baby steps before you start running, swimming or even flying.

So why do you not believe that this phase of hell you’re going through is nothing but a form of transformation that you’re going through?

Your Struggles are Your Transformation

“Who told you it was too late? And more importantly, why did you choose to believe them?”
~ Richelle E. Goodrich

Begin now because each moment is fleeing, if you’re trying to make up your mind its already gone. But if you decide to take a step forward towards your goal, I commend your choice. But now comes the tricky part. Where do you begin?

It’s a simple answer to a long grueling task, you begin where it hurts the most. The starting point isn’t going to be the same for you or me, or anybody because we’re all cracked and broken in different places.

A simple way to figure out your starting point is to pay attention to what is occupying the most space in your mind. What are the thoughts, that instead of walking, keep surfacing again and again like a looping beat in your head.

What are these thoughts telling you, are they positive thoughts that build you up or are they holding you down and tearing you apart? The best place to start with is a review, play back your day and observe yourself, meditate on what you would like to change.

“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.” ~ Steve Maraboli

Design your own mantra or affirmation, yes you will work on this, you will become stronger you will become a better person than what you are because it is what you want and need at this point of time.

Some of us are lucky enough to have dealt with all the thoughts and overcome them, but those of you who’re still dealing with them its time to listen to them and realize.

“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle

 

Have you actually listened to your thoughts, or do you try to just brush them aside. This is what you need to meditate on, the thoughts on loop, listen to them and remember that you’re not them but you’re the person who has the power to change them, to work with them and turn them into something that grounds you.

For me I have always ignored the body that holds my soul for so many years, and it has tried to talk to me for so long. Now it screams and I finally listen and I’m making sure it isn’t too late by going out of my way to become more healthy.

Like me most of us already know what the answer to our problems are, its just that we’re too shaky to take the first few steps, what if we fail, what if we let ourselves down. Either you give up without trying and call it sour grapes or climb up that spout and fall down like the incy wincy spider.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it!” ~ Paulo Coelho

Yes the sun came out and the incy wincy spider climbed up the spout again! Although the video below called Trust Your Struggle is a based on Zane’s experience you can find the motivation in it to get through your dark night!

God speed dear friends, to health and happiness!

“Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” ~ Joshua J. Marine
