How to Stop Struggling

Welcome to The Big Idea of the Week!

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk about how to stop struggling by turning our struggles into challenges.

Are you in a struggle or challenge?

  • A struggle is a burden.
  • A challenge is an opportunity.
  • A struggle is, “I can’t wait for this to be done.”
  • A challenge is, “I can’t wait to see where this goes.”
  • A struggle is being in one place, but needing to be in another.
  • A challenge is fully being where you are, not needing to be anywhere else.
  • A struggle is, “How can I get out?”
  • A challenge is, “What more can I give?”
  • A struggle is resistance.
  • A challenge is acceptance.

Think about something important to you that you’re working on improving: a relationship, a project, a goal. Now think about the energy around the thing you picked. Are you in a struggle or are you in a challenge?

On the surface a struggle and a challenge look like the same thing. They are both tough. The biggest difference though is the energy around them. Plain and simple, a struggle is a challenge that is filled with resistance.

Is there something in your life that you’re struggling with that could be turned into a challenge? It can happen, all it takes is a mental shift.
