Our problems are catalysts with which can can reveal our unlimited potential.
Life itself has no arms or legs or a voice. The only way for the universe to communicate to us is by handing us problems at the most inconvenient times.
This is because, as humans, we have unlimited potential. There are so many people who are living their unlimited potential as I write and everyone reveals their unique potential in a different way. My mentor in life, Daiskau Ikeda, has revealed his unlimited potential. He has nearly 300 doctorate degrees focused on peace and humanity. He travels the world to speak with world leaders tirelessly. He has dialogued with Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and many more historic figures. And although I do not strive to accomplish the exact same things as he has, I really strive to also reveal my unlimited potential in the way that is unique to me while using him as a guide for what is possible.
In order to push us to reveal our potential, the universe gives us problems. It is always those areas of life that we need to focus on to reveal an even greater self.
When I learned this a few days ago, my perspective on my sometimes frustrating circumstance here in France changed. It reminded me to not give up, as I have mentioned that I will never do, and it reminded me that I simply have these challenges so that I may become a better person (stronger, more fearless, ready to take on even greater challenges that life will inevitably throw at me, stronger in faith, etc.). It’s kind of a win-win situation.
What is your perceptive on having problems and how do you deal when life hands you too many lemons at once?
