Perseverance Through Pain
Perseverance Through Pain. This is a guiding principle of our company. Now, to some it will just seem like another stupid saying or a cool motto we came up with. This statement has so much more meaning to it than what some see when they read it at surface level.
How many times in your life have you faced adversity? How many times have you persevered through something that felt like you could never find your way through? My guess is probably more times than you can count. If you have been on this earth more than five minutes, you have faced some type of struggle or challenge that required you to dig deeper.
Now, in saying that I am also aware that many people do not face the hard things in life head on. They spend so much time trying to find a way to make it easier or to find a way around it completely. In the end when you take this approach, it makes everything so much harder. I say this knowing I used to try to use this approach all the time and it always ended up making my life so much more difficult.
Pain is unavoidable. It is a part of life. It can consume you and cause you to quit before you even start. It is important to find things in life where you intentionally become uncomfortable and have to work through some kind of pain. This could be mentally, physically, or both. Putting yourself through discomfort on purpose will train you to be able to handle pain much better in situations that you did not see coming.
If you train yourself how to persevere through pain, nothing will stop you. If you make this part of your daily life, it will be as easy as eating breakfast every morning. It will become a routine and you will become strong, resilient, and a force to be reckoned with.
So, what will YOU choose? Will you take the easy road and continue to let pain control you and run your life? Or, will you take The Hard Road and learn how to persevere through pain?
