We all struggle. It’s how we approach struggle that determines our long-term results with the things that matter to us.
Feeling sorry for ourselves during struggle is a trap. It is our mind looking for an excuse to stop trying. It’s asking for our permission to quit. It wants us to give up and move on. But struggle is not something to feel disappointed about.
Struggling and failing are part of the learning process. They are signs we’re challenging our current self while trying to reach towards the next, ideally better and healthier, version of ourselves.
