Struggles will make you stronger

Last Update: December 05, 2020

Hello and I hope your day is going well.

Each of us are on our own path, travelling to our own destination, it is also important to travel at our own pace.

Sometimes people can feel pressured by those they are travelling alongside in the same direction but where the destination is different. Others can sometimes feel frustrated when some people don't travel at the same speed as them or take the same route they think would be "best"

In learning a new skill or wanting to earn money to relieve uncomfortable pressure there can be a tendency to become impatient, rush things along, thinking we are doing the right thing, looking for the quick fix.

It is often commented on that starting an online business is no quick solution to success and financial freedom. Success and financial freedom is all possible but it requires patience and determination and to work with the process and not to force it to happen by taking big short cuts. This reminded me of the following story.


“Once upon a time, a man found a butterfly that was starting to hatch from its cocoon. He sat down and watched the butterfly for hours as it struggled to force itself through a tiny hole. Then, it suddenly stopped making progress and looked like it was stuck.

Therefore, the man decided to help the butterfly out. He took a pair of scissors and cut off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily, although it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

The man thought nothing of it, and he sat there waiting for the wings to enlarge to support the butterfly. However, that never happened. The butterfly spent the rest of its life unable to fly, crawling around with small wings and a swollen body.

Despite the man’s kind heart, he didn’t understand that the restricting cocoon and the struggle needed by the butterfly to get itself through the small hole were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings to prepare itself for flying once it was free.”


Patience is the quality which enables a person to accept the delays or shortcomings in life with calm and composed persona. It is not easy to
be patient because it is in human nature to expect certain things in life in a certain way.

" Patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting"

We can all fly, it is just a matter of time.

The struggle you face today will make you stronger tomorrow.

Stay safe

Tracy
