“What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him.” — Viktor Frankl

At the beginning of this week, I encouraged building some intentional “quiet time” into your day-to-day lives. Paradoxically, it may seem, today I’m encouraging you to build in some struggle!

“It is difficulties that show what men are.” — Epictetus

Progress is facilitated when training is put into practice. You need obstacles, challenges, and misfortune that test and push your abilities.

Don’t hide from or avoid these moments. Welcome them. Embrace them. “Thank” them.

People, situations, and circumstances that encourage us to exercise and employ what you’ve learned are why you practice and prepare. You’ll grow or you’ll learn. Either is a lesson worth the time and effort.

“A setback has often cleared the way for greater prosperity. Many things have fallen only to rise to more exalted heights.” — Marcus Aurelius

Until next week, keep flying higher!

Keep flying higher!
