‘Struggle’, the word that reminds us of all the things that we have been through or going through to fulfill our dreams in life! So, does the struggle end when we achieve our goals? Well, those who think, it does, sorry to upset you, but it doesn’t!
From the moment we choose a different path in life, difficulties and hardships become our constant companions, and with every new day comes new complications. Generally speaking, the struggle is inextricably linked to our purpose. We overcome all the obstacles that come in our way because we are on a mission to accomplish something greater than ourselves, something worth living for or fighting for, something that gives meaning to our pointless lives. But often forget that even if we successfully achieve our goal, there is always something more to do. At one point, success is knocking at our doorstep, but at another, we might be striving hard to even get recognized. Moreover, there is no guarantee of attaining success in everything we choose to do. So, does it mean we give up?
There will always be thunder or rogue waves somewhere in the ocean, that doesn’t mean sailors leave the boat! The struggle is a part of life and every journey shares a fair amount of ups and downs. Finally, there is no end to the pain. An aversion to obstacles has permeated our lives, our thoughts have reduced to wishing only for a happy and healthy life without any effort. But the reality is quite different. In reality, the ability to endure pain is directly proportional to success. Likewise, the ability to struggle is directly proportional to growth. Hurdles in our way never weaken us but the desire for comfort or fear of failure does. The challenges are there to make us strong, push our limits, and explore new horizons.
We need to embrace struggles like we embrace our scars. It proves that we are trying to be better than yesterday and preparing for a better tomorrow. The struggles do not define us but the person we become when we face them and overcome them. Lastly, it is the struggle that makes us appreciate life and success.
“Sometimes, struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If we were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for regrets”.
– Friedrich Nietzsche
