The mindset shift that will help you through any challenge

The wound is the place where the light enters you. - Rumi
The challenges we face in life and business can be overwhelming at times. When setbacks start to pile up, it’s easy to become disheartened and exhausted.
What we know for sure is that within struggle, we learn what’s needed to take us to the next level. Looking back on previous hardship, we can clearly see what we learned and how it has helped us moving forward.
Challenges provide practical training ground for all of the nuggets of wisdom we learn from books, mentors, courses, etc. We can read all the books we can get our hands on, but we need to practically apply our knowledge to learn.
If we can accept our challenges as necessary for growth, it becomes easier to detach emotion from the situation and identify opportunities for advancement. We give ourselves a light at the end of the tunnel. A positive outcome to work towards that will pay off long term.
When a challenge comes up and you find yourself stressed/anxious, ask yourself:
Where is the opportunity for growth here?
Find it, focus on it and let it lead how you approach the problem.
