In life, we encounter problems as we breathe. But it doesn’t get to us until we feel a major impact, and that’s when it becomes a source of concern, hurt, or sorrow.
Life problems, depending on their magnitude, can be clogs in the wheel of progress, and we may not be able to attain our full potential if we don’t learn to place our problems in the proper perspectives as suggested in Robert Schuller’s Tough Times Never Last.
Although, rage and frustration is common behaviour during hard times, and sometimes just show the inability to cope up with a particular situation, hard times do show the entirety of ones character.
When everything in going in smooth in life, we are under no stress and pressure, we can usually manage to keep ourselves together. When we face the hard times and are pushed towards the breaking point, is when our values of life keep us together. A person who has strong values might fall but will never compromise on their morals and values. Such people know that hard time will end one day but if they give up on their values, they won’t stay intact even one day.
It may seem very difficult at the time, but always hold on to your integrity. What you lose may be little, but when you hold yourself together, you gain much more in the time to come.
Problems are what make life worth living. They help us adapt to become tougher as we adapt to different situations. Always remember that whatever problem you are facing has a solution or, at least, a manageable approach.
Therefore, never allow your challenges to stop you from fulfilling your true potentials in life.
