th-2… is the ONLY WAY to learn.

If it were easy, there wouldn’t be anything to learn. It would only be to enjoy.

Pain is our greatest teacher and our greatest fuel for change.

Anything worth having in life is worth the fight. Anything you can walk away from isn’t worth your time.

Struggles make us better. When there is an investment in energy and awareness, you grow. No pain, no gain. The difficult times slow us down, make us more conscious of our behavior and force us to seek out new alternatives that we may have never experienced.

In short, learning the hard way opens you up to deeper experiences that enrich the soul and challenge the mind. Learning the hard way teaches you deeper strategic tools for your growth and development. Learning the hard way gives you character. Learning the hard way makes you resourceful and better able to anticipate changes.

Learning the hard way is the only way to learn. Otherwise you are just being handed the answers. Learn to find those answers yourself and learn to uncover them through your darkest night. Once you learn things the hard way, you learn that you can do anything.

… Life is definitely a game… I say this all the time. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, what matters is how you play the game.

If we could see that our lives are perfectly orchestrated by us, we would not put so much stock in external drama. We buy into our illusions as being real – all the day-to-day drama seems overwhelming at times and we think we might not make it through.

The fact is, we are always in control. We are the ones who are orchestrating all the moves on the table. Sure, we may make a bad move here or there and we may even lose a game or two, but the winning is in the learning behind every bad move. We learn the most from our bad moves and our opponent’s bad moves. Never despair, there is always another game to be played and always another opportunity to make a different move. 

In the game of life, the king or the queen can always be taken out. But we are never the king or the queen that gets taken out, we have to remember that we are bigger than that… we are the ones with free will and we are the ones that are making the moves that affect our lives everyday. We are in control. As long as we are in this body, we are in complete control of every move we make. We are never the pieces getting dragged off the board.

Remember that you are never a victim of your life. You are the one strategizing your next move at every given moment. Ultimately, it’s not about winning or losing. The wins are always in the lessons, never in the number of pieces left on the board.
