The Struggle is in the Past

On the road of life, we encounter many road blocks, detours, closed lanes, traffic jams, wrecks, and a crippling fear of driving to begin with. As you navigate these dilemmas, you learn skills that are priceless on your road to fulfillment.

The Struggles

Struggles Redifined

We have all heard it before: You go through all things for a reason.

With so much smoke from this saying being thrown around, surely there is a fire somewhere! Let’s follow the pillar of smoke and see where it leads us: here’s a hint....the fire.

Fire, Fire, Pants on Fire. (Again?)

As a kid and early into my adulthood, I had many struggles that I truly don’t think most people have gone through. The thing is, coming out on the other side victorious is the monumental achievement you get to share as your own personal success story continues to develop. The struggles I went through, the struggles you go through, are all learning curves on the road of life. Life does have a set of rules when engaging in the race, one that every driver knows is they must stay in their lane. The law of the road that most people fail to recognize, is when you hit a struggle (aka a curve) you have two options: Learn how to navigate the curve, or hit the guard rail. If you navigate the curve properly, you have now successfully learned a new driving skill and that curve (or struggle) is no longer the daunting cliff you thought it was.

On the otherside of the curve is a guard rail. Your gonna hit it hard if you don’t teach yourself how to drive that curve. The guard rail will keep you from being devestated much from the carnage, that you will still attempt to drive more and try to learn that curve so you can move on.

Are you aware that your car is a the only one of your make and model in all of history? By the way....

What I have found that keeps the car going in the midst of hitting the guard rail time and time and time again is a little bit of one word: Hope. Hoping and believing in yourself enough to know that one day you will make a better life for yourself. Even when the guard rail keeps swallowing your car, you get out of that car and recognize that the curve isn’t the end of the road. Look further than the wreck, and then you will see that the wrecks will just be setbacks until you have mastered one struggle and moved on to the next.

Struggles will always be apart of your life, but you decide the struggles you keep in your life and the struggles you over come. Hope and Belief is what anchors the boat in the midst of the storm.
