This episode of YourCreativeChord Podcast features my personal blog on using struggles as stepping stones to happiness and my poem, How To Feel The Sun. My message of encouragement for enduring the pandemic and other stress factors of 2020.
"It's easy for any of us to be defeated by our problems. Whether they are big or small doesn't matter. They're our problems and because of that, they can seem tailor-designed to knock us down."
"Regardless of specifics, when faced with difficulty, having the attitude to work toward a solution or win victory, is the first step to creating forward momentum."
"You Get Stronger Through Challenging A Problem"
"If we first work on strengthening the attitude behind our actions, we stand a greater chance of overcoming the problem or reaching a goal. Actions we take are only part of the solution or winning strategy."
Excerpt from my poem, How To Feel The Sun:
"In your heart, you have everything you need to break through
You must awaken to the fact that it all depends on you
There, inside, a battle wages between your darkness and light
You must focus all your energy on keeping victory in sight."
"There’s an Einstein quote I love, 'It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.'"
"Problems can function as beneficial to our lives because they push us into the proverbial corner until we learn to strengthen our belief in the unlimited potential within ourselves and humanity."
