We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for the journey.Kenji Miyazawa
We are all going through a journey called life. In the beginning of our journey, we may initially thought that we would have an easy ride. For instances, when we were kids, things come naturally, food will be place on the table, toys will be given for us to play, however as we continue the journey called life, when suddenly exams start to come in, mistakes start building, friends and family start betraying, failures start luring and working in a job we are hating. Instantly, we thought to ourselves that we are in for a bumpy ride.
We are all here in a journey to reach a certain destination that we want to go, be it to get a good grade in college, to spend more time with family, to go on a trip around Europe or to achieve the dreams and goals we have set. However, along the way, there will be and always be experiences that will fill you up towards defeat, for instances, your boss may fill you with pain, your friends may fill you with negative thoughts and all your other disappointments, failures and setbacks in life may fill you with thoughts of defeat.
However, whatever broken experience that is FILLING you up to defeat, Use it to FUEL yourself up to victory. Start to embrace the pain as a source of fuel to keep going in your journey towards success. When we are failing in whatever stages in our life, instead of us just giving up all and let life dictate the destiny of our journey, we must first have the sense of ‘I have had enough’ attitude: I have had enough of being in pain, I have had enough to being label a failure or I have had enough of staying down far too long.
Only then, we are willing to make the necessary changes in our life, to change the way we do things, to change the way we see things, to change the direction of our plan for the better of our future. Only then, we can reach the destiny of our destination that no matter how bumpy or how bad the ride is, it won’t affect our journey. Therefore, all of us are able to use what was once filling us up with disappointments, failures and defeat, now we use it to fuel us in our journey to the victory of our dreams.
