Seeing Through the Pain
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
Nothing lasts-not even pain.
As you gain momentum, you will begin to see through the pain. The body-builder still feels pain, even when they are consistent because of the added resistance they choose to put on themselves every time they workout in order to get more muscle mass. They have now learned to see through the pain.
In the same way, the entrepreneur who sets out on his/her journey of success goes through various obstacles. The only difference is that, they are now experienced enough in overcoming challenges, that they are ready for the next one. The challenges don't disillusion them from their promises anymore. At this point, the promise is stronger than the price and they are willing to pay any price.
This article describes the vision of the person that you will become when you set your mind to become a learner under all circumstances. Once you have overcome an obstacle, you grow and are ready to tackle greater obstacles.
In order for the bodybuilder to be successful in achieving his/her goal of the ultimate physique, as well as the level of fitness desired, it is important that they see through the pain; they have to see past the short-term temporary pain in order to get the long-term physique and health that they are looking for. In the very same way, the person who wants to be successful in any venture will have to see past the disciplines - the pain- that they have to go through, in order to reap the rewards of that discipline.
If the pain is all you can think about, then you will not take action. Go beyond the pain. See beyond the pain to the wide expanse of success that lies before you. Success is waiting for you to pick it up. Will you?
