Instructor’s Corner: The Struggle…
It is worth noting this. As it is easy to cast our eye around and be fooled – over and over again. The best athletes struggle – with motivation, with injury, with self-doubt, with drug-use, etc.
The wealthiest people struggle – with trying to work out who their real friends are, with depression, with loneliness, with stress, anxiety, etc.
The gifted struggle – with social convention, with fiscal irresponsibility, etc. Everyone struggles.
There are high-profile people – people that many of us would label celebrities – who are masters of ‘keeping up appearances’ but who fail miserably at basic budgeting, at inter-personal relationships, at being healthy … or happy.
What we see out there – when we ‘lift the curtain’ – is often not what the storybooks would promise us.
Here’s the takeaway … everyone struggles – but it is who we become in facing up to those struggles that shapes and moulds us into who we really are …
Struggle is a part of life … it provides the resistance that can either make us … or break us. I say, embrace it … and prevail.”………JBW
