So consider this your wake-up call.

What most people fail to realize is that pain is inevitable and unavoidable.

There is no path in life without pain. Whatever it is that you’re going after, whoever it is that you’ve been destined to become, you cannot have it, you will not become it – without pain.

You will face challenges and difficulties regardless if you are single, if you are married, if you are a stay-at-home mom, a stay-at-home father, if you are an entrepreneur, if you are working a 9-5, if you are an educator, if you are an athlete, if you are a musician, if you are a singer or producer.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you are doing – pain is inevitable.

If you are going to hurt like this, bleed like this, cry like this – cry because you are in the best shape of your life. Cry because you are conditioned to weather the uphill war. Cry because you are building your relationship. Cry because you are building your business. Cry because you are building your legacy. Cry because you passed the test and because you gave it everything you had in your heart.

Everything in life comes with hardship.

Make a decision at some juncture and you will encounter pain – and the moment that you get acquainted with pain you get acquainted with hardship. You realize that no matter what you do, no matter how much you study, no matter how much you plan – you will not be able to avoid a measure of pain.

If you don’t go to the gym it’s going to hurt you and if you do go to the gym it’s going to hurt you. Your muscles are going to cramp or tear, but on the other side of that pain there is a reward. You won’t regret taking care of your body when you make those healthy decisions.

It's the reward of discipline. It's the reward of longevity. It's the reward of power. 

Do you want results? Do you want a reward?

Or do you want regrets?

The decision is yours. It’s all hard. So choose choose your pain – because it is inevitable and it is unavoidable. Pick your pain.

  • It’s hard to let go of the past.
  • It’s hard to give some of your time.
  • It’s hard to give your talent.
  • It’s hard to balance work and life.
  • It’s hard to acquire new skills.
  • It’s hard to be stagnant.
  • It’s hard to be a workhorse.
  • It’s hard to be lazy.
  • It’s hard to learn how to manage and cultivate relationships.
  • It’s hard to learn from your experiences.
  • It’s hard to hold on.
  • It’s hard to let go.

It’s hard to turn your mess into your message.

There is a reward or regret after experiencing hardships.

There is a reward or regret attached to every decision that you make.

Pain does have an expiration date, and when that pain ends another one will surface.

So continue to grow stronger because you chose to turn your pain into power.
