Growing Stronger With Obstacles
Life is nothing but a battle ground and in order to survive, one should continue fighting. With every victory you become stronger and with every defeat you learn how not to fight; either way you only learn and grow.
Just as for right-handed people, the right hand is stronger than the left hand, for the right hand works more than the left hand does, and vice versa with the left-handed people, we all have our strengths and weaknesses. And it is our duty to recognise these strengths and weaknesses in order to be fully equipped when going into battle. Struggle is nothing but an opportunity to rise to the next level. Imagine how weak you will grow if every time you are faced with difficulties, a miracle happens and someone comes to your aid. But it is only when you face those struggles yourself that you become mightier. History celebrates both the victorious and the defeated but not those who give up. The world wouldn’t have been talking about Mahatma Gandhi today if he hadn’t fought back when he was thrown out of the first-class train compartment.
If all of our goals were easy and totally straightforward to achieve, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to grow and improve. Obstacles shouldn’t be avoided. They’re there to help us get bigger and better and raise our levels of capability and confidence while achieving our biggest goals and wildest dreams. As we overcome obstacles, we become stronger and stronger. Obstacles often catalyse the development of resilience and adaptability, equipping us with the fortitude to persevere through future adversities. By embracing and learning from these inevitable hurdles, we ultimately emerge as stronger, more capable individuals, armed with the insight and experience needed to navigate the complexities of life with confidence and grace.
Obstacles are not just a part of life; it is essential for our growth. Life has plenty of obstacles, don’t allow yourself to become your own hindrance. As Martin Luther King Jr. quotes- “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving.”
