Because This Is Your Life

As you go through your life there are times when things seem to always go the way you want and then there’s times when things never seem to go your way.

During this “balanced” journey of life as I’m calling it, there are those situations that come up that sometimes you just can’t seem to explain.

What I’m referring to is some of the things you’ll see people do.

They’ll be situations where you’ll see people do the most amazing and heartfelt things.

Then they’ll be situations where you’ll see someone doing or not doing things that really get you to “shake your head” and have you wondering…”why.”

How many times have you seen this?

We’ve all seen this type of thing and have even been involved in these situations with others as well…

And for many people they turn into very stressful situations.

So the important thing here is, “how can you turn what seems like a negative situation into a life transforming situation for you and those you care about?”

First, it is important to know that in every stressful situation there is also a relaxing part of that situation.

How can this be true when it doesn’t seem like it on the outside?

Let’s start by understanding what stress is.

Stress is an exaggeration and minimization of what is.

Take any situation for example. You may have 10 people all witnessing the same situation at the same moment and you’ll have half of the people saying it was stressful and the other half saying it wasn’t.

Along with that you’ll also have 10 different interpretations of that situation.

So where am I going with this?

Well just know that in every crisis there’s a blessing. In every  stressful situation there is an underlying gift which is present, even though it may not appear that way at first.

Therefore…

One of the best ways that you can turn your stressings into blessings is to always look for that “gift” in what appears to be a chaotic situation.

There’s always a hidden order which is present no matter what is going on around you.

It is also in that hidden order where you really get to see the brilliance of who you are and what you have to offer the world.

To many people, overcoming stress may be a way to live what some call a “peaceful” life, however the true gift in it all is you finding out how special, unique, and amazing of a person you are.

Upon realizing this, the most amazing thing you can do is to pass that on to others so they can see how special, unique, and amazing of a person they are too.

I like to call this, “passing the torch.”

And the more you get in the habit of doing this, the more you’ll realize just how valuable you are in the world and you create a ripple effect.

As a result, your legacy is born and the brilliance of who you are leaves a long lasting positive effect on others…
