"Every successful person has a painful story. Every painful story has a successful ending. Accept the pain and get ready for success." ~ Author unknown
Did you know that the worst thing that happened to you could lead to the best thing that ever happens to you? Pain and success are a journey.
Sherrie Campbell in her article describes 7 Inevitable Stages of Pain Before You Succeed.
These stages of Success are:
1. You will feel pain.
2. You will want to give up prematurely.
3. You will lose relationships.
4. People will discourage you.
5. You will be hated for no reason.
6. You will doubt yourself.
7. You will fail.
8. It will all be worth it.
The eight-step in this list is where everything comes to make sense. It's going to be worth all of the pain.
You have to believe that you will succeed, and you have to trust the process. When the right thoughts and actions are combined there is nothing you cannot achieve. With the right idea, attitude, and thoughts a struggle really is nothing but another essential component of your success.Sherrie Campbell
Success comes after the Pain
Not all storms come to drown you, some come to clear your path! If you didn't face those challenges you wouldn't know how much strength you carry?
Do you know that your pain could lead you right into your purpose?
Or that the worst breakdown you had could lead to the greatest breakthrough you'll ever have?
I have learned to embrace all my breakdowns, pain and the storms that came my way. I have picked out the lessons, I have allowed the pressure and the fire to refine me some more and make me a better, stronger, wiser and more wholesome person.
I am the wiser, the stronger and the better for it.
What they thought was going to destroy me, made me!
