You may think, “If only I reach [this next phase of my life], then I won’t have to deal with these problems.” But the fact is, no matter where you are or how you live your life, you will always be challenged.

Just because you reach a certain level of success doesn’t mean all problems in your life disappear. They don’t. They simply evolve into whatever comes with that phase of your life and lifestyle.

How large or insurmountable the challenges in your life appear is in direct proportion to how well you learned to handle those that you previously encountered.

For example, dropping your ice-cream cone or spilling your milk seems like a serious problem as a child. Not so much to an adult. That’s because you’ve developed the skills necessary to handle such things without falling to pieces.

This can be said for all problems, not just childhood woes. It is through the problems that you overcome in life, that you develop the strength & skills necessary to handle whatever comes next. Contrast in your life is a good thing.

The trick to reducing how much challenges set you back in life is not in magically making them disappear. The trick is to develop the skills & discipline necessary to positively & productively handle whatever challenges come your way.

Complaining about problems — or actively resisting challenges — doesn’t diminish them. It is only through the action of facing them productively that does.

The faster you make that transition and adopt an “I can and will handle this” attitude the smaller your problems appear.

Don’t let what you can’t do stand in the way of what you can do.
