Happiness Through Hardship
WHAT IS YOUR UNDERLYING MOTIVATION?
We’ve all been through a lot in life. I know there’s been a lot of times you’ve felt tested, and even just beat down.
As you’ve gone through these challenges you’ve acquired sets of skills to help you get through them. Those are important skills that have helped you along your journey, whether you realize it or not.
Unfortunately, though, your skills may not help you with what’s next. Life is about continually growing your tool box and being adaptive and not giving up on what you were meant to do.
Even though it may be hard to know what that is, you just have to follow your heart. Live for yourself, not for others.
That doesn’t mean be malicious. You still need compassion and companionship. Just know you can do good for yourself and others at the same time.
On this episode of 5 Minute Friday, I wanted to bring you back and episode from Chris Guillebeau.

He’s certainly faced an overwhelming amount of challenges, some we can only imagine. That’s why I felt he was the best person to dive even deeper into this lesson.
