“We can have more than we’ve got because
we can become more than we are.” by Jim Rohn
When things go wrong in our life, we often react by blaming our circumstances; it’s the fault of the government, our bosses, spouses, parents, children, friends etc. And mind you, this list could be inexhaustible for some of us.
However by focusing ONLY on the problem, its injustice and the current circumstances we often lose hope and become despair. Yet the joy that could have been ours through learning from our life experiences just passed us by. It doesn’t have to be this way. The shedding of tears and sweat could never be avoided in our life. It is part of life. As the saying goes “The darkest hour is just before the dawn.” Meaning, there is always hope, even in the worst of circumstances.
There are other ways to process the difficulties and challenges that comes into our lives.
In my life, i am very fortunate to have access to many different influences and voices. And these influences help me get through my own life challenges and difficulties. One of the voices that help shaped my life philosophy is Jim Rohn. Although i never had the good fortune of meeting him in person, I find his sharing of wisdom and philosophy makes a lot of common sense. His lectures are often interjected with his wit and humour which makes the material so enjoyable and easy to comprehend.
If you are facing some seemingly insurmountable challenges in your life, you may want to listen to some of his lectures. Perhaps it give you a fresh perspective to view things. I have here a recording that i found in YouTube for you to begin your journey with him. All credit goes to Jim Rohn and Susan Lang that posted this material.
My sincere wish is that perhaps if you listen carefully, you will find one kernel of idea that could help you take charge of your life and turn things around.
