"The gate to any new period of growth or maturity in our lives requires a period of discomfort and disorientation. Out of this experience we eventually create a more deeply integrated story."
Growth as a creative leader is often associated with pain and discomfort. Anytime we try something new or learn a new technique, we must pass through a period of frustration and unhappiness before we become a master. Everything has a price and we must pay that price. The paradox is that when things come to easily we become bored. We like a challenge and new opportunities for growth and development. And the more pain the stronger our personal story becomes.
What are you struggling with at this moment? What barriers stand in your way? What is frustrating you? There is light at the end of this tunnel even if you can't see it. And you will be a better artist, writer or actor when you come through it. Give thanks for these moments of growth.
