Incoming pain

How to deal with incoming pain?

Do you feel that all the doors of life are closed?

Not finding a way to move forward?

Do you feel like you are in the middle of an ocean of pain?

Celebrate that moment. It’s a good thing.

We all know, think, and talk about leadership but often find it difficult to lead our actions.

Often we don’t act unless circumstances force us to.

Pain forces us to ACT!

Every pain comes with a purpose.

Reflect on this old saying:

“No pressure, no diamond!”

When pain comes to take you over, stay patient; stay calm; stay positive. Things will work out  … may not be quickly but eventually.

There are two ways to deal with painful situations:

1. Feel the pain,
2. Act despite the pain!

When you choose to just feel the pain you keep wondering, despite all this pain, why it’s not working out? You stop living and start thinking.

When you act despite the pain, you invent possibilities to make something better out of the pain. You continue living … flowing like a river and keep moving on.

Oprah said:

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.”

Profound thought. Something that makes you wiser should be enjoyed, not suffered, isn’t it?

Do not be afraid of your own reality and your feelings.

You are going to carry it anyways.

How you carry your pain, matters.

It’s a feeling.

Your feelings are part of you. Your own reality.

If you feel bad about it and try to hide it or suffer from it, you’re doing really hard work to live a miserable life.

Instead, be tougher than incoming pain so pain thinks to go back, reinvent itself and in the process, you too, reinvent yourself.

And, you learn the art of turning your wounds into wisdom.
