S:0511 Principle: Tolerating Struggle

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Have you ever noticed how some people seem to struggle in life? Struggle with money. Relationships. Health. Some struggle discovering the purpose for their life.

This may sound harsh, but struggle is a choice. Oh, maybe not a conscious choice; some may have bought into struggle through early conditioning or through some unfortunate later incident. And, yes, some have even made a conscious choice to struggle to justify living as a victim.

However they got there, know this — you don’t have to struggle. If you are struggling right now, you don’t have to continue. Get help; it’s tough to get out of struggle alone.


Coaching point: What is the payoff for you to tolerate struggle? Can you any longer afford the cost of that payoff?
