Note: We recently launched of a seminar series, “Five Things You Must Know To Make Your Life Better.” Each week we’re taking a quick look at each of the five.
#3: Embrace the Rough Patches.
Just because the road has bumps doesn’t mean it’s not the correct road.
Difficult times don’t throw us off; it’s mistakenly believing that we wouldn’t have difficult times that throws us for a loop.
If we think it’s a straight shot from here to there, when we do hit a barrier we think, “It’s all over! I’ve lost my mojo.”
Even the best relationships cause some pain. However, we don’t dump our partner just because we don’t see eye-to-eye. We work through it. Expect that there will be difficult times – and expect you’ll work through it.
Since 80% of setbacks are caused by the same couple of issues repeated over and over and over again, a rough patch – if handled correctly – gives us an opportunity to finally get past a long-term barrier we’ve had that’s consistently held us back, probably causing relapses.
If we handle it well, we’ll NEVER have to face it again.
