Has your life felt challenging lately?
I’m going to be very real with you right now.
My life has been incredibly challenging lately.
Between building my businesses, trying to keep my house clean, working out, and strategizing future business moves, I’ve felt just a little bit overwhelmed.
Today, I took a walk… just to get some exercise and to unplug for a little while and think.
And as I was walking (I was walking in the midst of a beautiful Missouri sunset… with perfect weather), I was just overcome by this incredible wave of gratitude.
For what, you may ask?
This may surprise you.
For the challenges.
Why Should You Be Grateful For The Challenges? Isn’t That Crazy?
This may sound crazy. But the honest truth is that since I’ve been on this alpha journey, I’ve learned that it’s more important than ever to embrace both challenges and failure.
But it’s even more important to be grateful for it.
I got very real and recorded some brief thoughts in a YouTube video/podcast, which you can listen to here:
You can listen to it/watch it for yourself to hear the meat of it.
But the general idea is this… and honest to god, this is what I’ve discovered for myself in life.
When you go through challenges and face setbacks, failures, and hardships in life, you should actually be grateful for them because they’re forming you into the amazing, strong, powerful alpha man or woman that you’ll need to be in order to succeed at all of the things you want to succeed at.
See, this is really like an ‘alpha life hack’ that most people don’t understand.
If you have big goals, and if you want to accomplish big things, then it’s in your best self-interest to make sure that you level up to become strong enough to shoulder the burdens of those goals.
I could go on and on about this, but if you watch the video you’ll understand a bit better what I’m saying.
Anyway… I say all of that to say… if you’re going through challenges right now, you’re not alone.
Plus, those challenges are also making you a stronger person.
And that means that you’ll be more likely to succeed in the future if you can learn to overcome the problems.
And hey… to me, that sounds like good news.
Go with grace, and never give up your power.
