Use Your Problem As Motivation

If you are going through a struggle and can't seem to see your way, hold on, it may just turn around. Take the time to see what is causing your struggle. 

What is that irritant in your life? 

Who or what is slowing your progress down?  

I say to you, "You are more than a conqueror and you shall exceed!" If fear is an irritant, you can conquer that also. Remember, never give up on learning how to achieve your dreams in lifeYou can overcome adversity. Take a look at some people that achieved their goals.

Albert Einstein Overcame Adversity.

You can capitalize on it, by turning it into a positive situation. You may be saying, " but that's hard". I know it seems hard, but take a look at Albert Einstein's life. He had one of the greatest minds of his century, but he had some struggles to get over.  According to  Wikipedia,

His father intended for him to pursue electrical engineering, but Einstein clashed with authorities and resented the school's regimen and teaching method. He later wrote that the spirit of learning and creative thought was lost in strict rote learning. At the end of December 1894, he traveled to Italy to join his family in Pavia, convincing the school to let him go by using a doctor's note. During his time in Italy he wrote a short essay with the title "On the Investigation of the State of the Ether in a Magnetic Field".

You see, even though he clashed with authorities and disliked the school's procedures and method of teaching, he stuck to his goals in the appropriate way.

When he traveled to join his family, he stayed on the path of his goal by writing an essay. Just because someone else can't see your dream, doesn't mean it can't come true. 

Einsteins even taught himself algebra and geometry. My point is to never say you can't accomplish a goal without trying first.

Einstein always excelled at math and physics from a young age, reaching a mathematical level years ahead of his peers. The twelve-year-old Einstein taught himself algebra and Euclidean geometry over a single summer. Einstein also independently discovered his own original proof of the Pythagorean theorem at age 12. A family tutor Max Talmud says that after he had given the 12-year-old Einstein a geometry textbook, after a short time "[Einstein] had worked through the whole book. He thereupon devoted himself to higher mathematics... Soon the flight of his mathematical genius was so high I could not follow." His passion for geometry and algebra led the twelve-year-old to become convinced that nature could be understood as a "mathematical structure".  Einstein started teaching himself calculus at 12, and as a 14-year-old he says he had "mastered integeral and differential calculus".

So never let anyone nor anything make you think you can't succeed in life. We all have different talents and successes in life, but if we put in the time and effort, nothing is impossible. 

Einstein could have wasted his talent, but he didn't. He strove for what he desired. So always take the right steps to achieve goals in life.

Walt Disney Overcame Adversity.

There are other people who overcame adversity over the years. For example, Walt Disney had the same learning disorder as Einstein. 

Walt Disney kept his eye on the prize. He kept pressing on and attended the Academy of Fine Arts while he also attended high school. That's what I call persevering to attend two schools at the same time. He didn't give up on his goals or dreams because of an irritant called dyslexia. 

Noooo, He did not give up.

He used it as a stepping stone & moved on. 

If there is an irritant (person or thing) trying to stand in your way, let it make you stronger and accomplish your goals. You can do it!

Be strong and use your problems as motivation

Always remember, you can do anything you put your mind to.

The Oyster Overcame Adversity.

Don't give up! Learn from your struggle, so that you can move higher. 

Some of the most beautiful things come from your struggle (irritant). Use your irritant as a stepping stone. 

Never let anyone or anything have the power to hold you back! 

An oyster can use its irritant (sand or small pieces of rocks which has gotten in its shell) to make a pearl. 

An oyster protects itself from the irritants (sand) by secreting a liquid called nacre to cover the irritant and make it smoother. This forms a pearl in about 3 years. 

If an oyster can form a pearl, imagine what you can form with your irritants. 

So when obstacles come up, or dirt is thrown at you, make a pearl.

Have a blessed day, moving higher!  


Final thought - The goal is to turn your irritant into a pearl.
