Hidden. . .
Difficulties in your life do not come to destroy you, but to help you realize your hidden potential and power”.
Difficulties come with purpose. They have been placed in your life for a reason. It’s hard to see in the moment how this could be possible, but that’s only because it is meant to make sense in hindsight. An unfortunate door closing might push you to pursue another path. A difficult circumstance prepares you to be strong when the next adversity comes, and that wisdom and experience can be shared with others who could use the support. Yea, you might feel destroyed in the moment, but that’s not the final intent. It’s a mechanism of growth for everything. It’s the philosophy that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
That’s exactly what lies on the other side of a challenge, which speaks to the second half of the quote, “Difficulties in your life do not come to destroy you, but to help you realize your hidden potential and power.”
Now knowing that a challenge is just the top layer to a magnificent gift, we can find appreciation for it. That doesn’t mean it isn’t hard in the moment, but it serves a larger purpose that we can accept.
Everything in life can be viewed from the lens that you choose, and it’s a strong perspective to take that difficulties breed potential.
Peace and Love, Jim
