Change will always be something constant. There will always be times of celebration, boredom, and struggle. In particular, when it comes to trials and hardships, I once heard that you are either coming out of a struggle, going through one, or going into one. So how should we deal with this?
Many people I know have created habits of worry in response to struggles. I have this saying that I like to say that people are often “in a hurry to worry.” The habit that I often practice, though, is “in a snap, remember to adapt.”
-moving forward despite adversity
-being okay with failure, but not okay with staying there
-shedding tears of sadness, without hindering tears of joy
-understanding that there may be times of famine and times of prosperity
-taking time to pause and appreciate that there is more life to live
People who make it a habit to adapt are people who succeed. Failure, struggle, pain, and hardships are just opportunities to practice this old, yet profound secret to life, and just know, that it is never too late to begin a new habit.
