The other day I was talking with a business owner that I have been coaching. He was very excited as, after struggling through a variety of challenges, he’d finally had an epiphany! And that epiphany was that ‘struggling is the point’. What he realized was that overcoming whatever obstacle that he was struggling with actually provided him the strength, insight, learning and creativity needed to work towards the ever-more difficult challenges that came along. Often-times, whether we are learners – or coaches! – we wish that we could just push that ‘easy button’ so we wouldn’t have to struggle. But as the saying goes, “Smooth seas do not a great sailor make”, so welcome new challenges and remember that ‘struggling is the point’.
