Why does it hurt…


As you try to reach your destiny a sudden “pain” arises to see if you are going to stop or continue…you pause for a second, and start talking to yourself asking, “why does it hurt?”…and then out of nowhere you get a response; and it goes…

It hurts because as you walk towards your dream you have to eliminate all the negativity…
It hurts because just like gold has to go through the fire to become pure; so do you to become wiser (Disclaimer: Fire is a symbol of obstacles, when it says “so do you to become wiser”)
It hurts because if it was easy; everyone would do it…
It hurts because it distinguish the weak from the strong…
It hurts because it makes you a better man/woman…

Then you yelled, “Who is there?“, “Who is saying this?”…Everything goes silent for 5 seconds, then the voice starts again closer than expect it…you have heard this voice many times, everyone calls it by a different name; this voice is consoling, loveable, forgiving, compassionate, etc… When you where in trouble, in pain, confused, or isolated you spoke to the individual behind that voice, when everything is going well; you tend to forget him/her; but, when everything goes bad that’s when you call his/her name…You know the voice but you can’t recall his/her name; so you ask, “What is your name?…The voice tells you they call me by many names: God, Yahweh, Jesus, Lord, Conscience, and much more…

So you politely ask this voice, “Why does it hurt” when you try to climb the mountain of success, when you try to become a better person, when you step out of your comfort-zone, or when you try to accomplish your dreams and/or goals…The voice gently whisper, it hurts because in the process of doing all these things you have to be cleanse…meaning, first you have to find “yourself”, secondly negativity has to be striped out of your life, thirdly obstacles come your way to make you stronger & wiser, and lastly you have to go through the ultimate test; and the voice stopped speaking. Like an impatient child at Christmas I tell the voice please tell me what is the ultimate test, after 5 seconds of nothing but silence, the voice gently whispers–“how bad do you really want this? How much are you willing to give up/change for this? How much do you need this in your life? How bad to you want to accomplish your dream?; the ultimate test is when you can answer these questions”. The voice paused, then said many individuals wanted so bad, but they don’t want to go through the process; and that is “why” they never mount to anything. Only those that go through this process achieve success–before the voice left…I asked, “how long is this process”…as it was leaving, it screams “until the day you fully achieve success”

Readers we want to be successful in our life, we want to accomplish our dreams, or we want to live a better life…but I have a question…why we want all this; but we don’t want to go through the process?
