Is self-sabotage standing in the way of you achieving your goals? Limiting beliefs born from past conditioning may have created a scheming saboteur out of you. Yes, that’s right, you may be sabotaging your life and don’t even know it.
In the darkest moments come the most illuminate teachings.
We’ve all experienced or will experience challenging moments in life that shake us to the core and test our will and resolve. Although these experiences are painful, they serve a definite purpose and benefit in the long run.
Have you ever wished that an experience you endured never happened and wish you could erase it? I know I certainly have. While it’s understandable to want to wipe out painful experiences we must ask ourselves if we hadn’t endured these less than perfect moments in life would we be the person we are today? There is much to be learned from the adversity we face. We must accept challenging moments in life and embrace the lesson and inevitable growth that follows. We are on an ever-changing journey of personal growth and will no doubt, be faced with future challenges. It is how we deal with these challenges that determine the quality of our lives.
I firmly believe that our greatest challenges in life can be our greatest rewards if we have the resolve to delve deep enough and long enough to detect them. Finding the upside in painful experiences may not be easy but if you reframe your thinking and seek the good until you find it, you will discover the reward in your greatest challenges.
The Universe is always observing, listening, and providing lessons essential to our evolution. Challenges inspire a breakthrough within us so that we may evolve to our highest potential. Although we may resist what appears, our greatest challenges in life provide invaluable lessons. You may learn to be more compassionate, empathetic, or loving towards others simply by identifying with others who are going through a similar experience. Perhaps, the reward in your suffering is that you are now better equipped to help others overcome their challenges.
Instead of wishing away painful life experiences, consider that challenges are a natural part of life and help you evolve to the person you are meant to be. All experiences contain lessons that can bring us closer to living our life purpose. If you feel as though there is nothing positive to gain from negative experiences, look closer, and examine the possibilities. If you continue to search for a deeper meaning over time you will find the benefit in your suffering. Move beyond the pain of your challenges and discover the rewards in your greatest challenges.
