“Nothing happens to any man that he is not formed by nature to bear.” -Marcus Aurelius
We have all heard the phrase ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ and it could be true…if you pay attention.
The funny and interesting thing about our existence in this universe is that everything that happens to us, if we can control our perception and the response thereof, can be used to overcome the next challenge or struggle that will inevitably enter our path. Using self-awareness, self-care, self-love, essentially, an uber sense of self focus, one can hone in and focus their energy into appreciating everything that happens to them as a lesson for the next event.
But it is so important to pay attention. Often, my clients perceive themselves as victims to some benevolent force that doesn’t want them to enjoy a fulfilling life. This is solely a limiting belief and simply isn’t true. YOU are your own benevolent force. YOU have control over your own perceptions and your own responses toward the events that happen.
Use these events to learn so that nature can be seen as an educational tool for your life and you can continuously move through each new lesson the Universe will bring to your life. In life coaching, I introduce this as the idea of ‘failing forward’.
Through self-awareness and paying attention to what’s going on, you CAN bear what happens to you in order to learn how to become a powerful force of nature in your own Universe!
