Have You Gotten Soft?
"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have it's perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." James 1:2-4
When I think about the times in my life I've grown the most, it was always when I was facing some sort of trial.
One trial in particular was the divorce from my first wife.
That event shook me up - but it also woke me up.
Reflecting on all the reasons why my first marriage came to an end brought me to the realization that I had not been living the life I really wanted.
It was a big turning point in my life because it got me back to my faith in God and refocused me on what I truly wanted my life to be.
It wasn't a fun experience but I came out of it a lot stronger and in a better place.
Trials test our faith, character, and mental toughness.
Much like lifting weights, the resistance makes us stronger.
It's no question investing in physical fitness creates confidence and mental toughness. It builds the foundation that supports us through many of the trials of life. I've seen it happen time and time again with many of my clients, my staff, and myself.
Tough workouts produce tough people. Tough workouts produce resilient people. Tough workouts produce strong character.
It's not rocket science that when you're mentally tough you handle trials much better.
At some point we will all face trials.
That includes you, .
