How To Work Through Pain

By on March 15, 2018

I’m not talking about physical pain because with enough time, you can overcome physical pain. I’m talking about the mental pain of going out there in the world and trying to accomplish your dreams.

The normal path isn’t to go after your dreams, it’s working for the man and being grateful you get a few weeks off for vacation. There are a select few of people in the world who want more than that and if you’re reading this article, you’re one of those people.

Pain comes in many forms, the most notable being the pain of failure. No one wants to fail, but it’s a must on your journey. There will be more than one instance in which you’ll encounter failure.

When you face the pain of failure, you have two options. You can let the pain deter you from going forward or you can work on taking massive action.

It’s not so much that taking massive action heals your pain, it’s that it takes your mind off the pain you’re dealing with. The worst thing you can do to yourself is to give yourself idle time because when you give yourself idle time that’s when you really think about all the pain you’re in.

No matter how many failures you’ve experienced or how much pain you’re dealing with, never give up on your dreams. When you make the conscious decision to give up, you’re going to face more pain than you could’ve ever imagined, the pain of regret.

When you wake up in the morning, don’t think about everything that’s gone wrong in your life.  Start the process of taking action. It’s not going to be easy, but if it was easy, it wouldn’t be worthwhile.

Put your head down and keep working. One day you’ll look back on the pain you went through and you’ll be thankful. You’ll be thankful because it will have made you into the person you are today!
