“Your strength doesn’t come from winning. It comes from struggles and hardship. Everything that you go through prepares you for the next level.”
I am extremely competitive and I love to win. But I know that my losses and struggles have helped me grow and improve far more than any win or success in life. Overcoming obstacles is the key to growth and resilience. Though when you are in the midst of the struggle it can be hard to keep this in mind. I have found that asking myself this simple question can help me reframe and refocus for the future.
“What is God teaching me right now so that I can better serve and represent His Kingdom in the future?”
Pausing to answer this, and take my focus off of me and put it back on God, is how I recenter during a struggle. What works for you?
