Be Your Own Savior!

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Until it suddenly stopped making any progress, and looked like it was stuck.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily, although it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

The man didn’t think anything of it, and sat there waiting for the wings to enlarge to support the butterfly. But that didn’t happen. The butterfly spent the rest of its life unable to fly, crawling around with tiny wings and a swollen body.

Despite the kind heart of the man, he didn’t understand that the restricting cocoon and the struggle needed by the butterfly to get itself through the small opening were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings to prepare itself for flying once it was out of the cocoon.

Well, our struggles in life develop our strengths. Without struggles we never grow and never get stronger, so it’s important for us to tackle challenges on our own, and not be relying on help from others.

There is nothing worse than going through a difficult time in your life and feeling like it was a complete waste of effort. Adversity has a way of defeating us and making us feel used up. But somewhere inside, we want to be able to make sense of our difficulties. We want to make them count for something positive, that all the pain we endured wasn’t for nothing. Life can be an ongoing war with many fierce battles; I have not won every battle however I am determined not to lose this war. We all have some problems and difficulties in our own life, but if you see them in reflection you find peace and happiness. Our difficulties have an expiration date. We may not be able to predict when it will be over, but know that it will come to an end. Adversity is not meant to last forever. The sun will come out again to shine in your direction. Remember that.
Even people with long-lasting physical illnesses can help alleviate their pain by making a choice to see the positive in everything, even the pain. When you welcome your temporary difficulties in, they immediately get smaller and more manageable. You get clearer on what action to take next. Going through difficulties humble us. It makes us assess what is important and chart a new course for our life. My problems were my anchor, until I made sense of my memories and re-framed them into something positive, they would forever hold me back.
When I cut the anchor of problems loose and said, “No more! I’ve had enough of this!” was exactly the moment I freed myself from a huge burden and began learning from what I had gone through. I understood that my adversity was the breeding ground for all growth moving forward. If you allow it, difficulties can teach you what you need to learn to be the best version of yourself. I changed one word in my vocabulary that made a huge shift in how I view life. I changed to into for.
Life is not happening to me; it is happening for me. Once I changed that one word, my problems became my ally instead of my enemy. I began to use my fears as a launching pad for the kind of person I wanted to become.
We should be aware of one thing, if we’ve took birth on this planet, with us; our failure and success too came to life. And they’re scheduled to arrive at their time. But as soon as failure strikes us, our success depends on how we react to that situation. It depends on how we deal with it. If you’re depressed and not doing anything about it, success will delay it’s arrival time. Clear up your mind, make yourself your own savior and tackle those struggles bravely. My friends, your train of success will not be very far away.  In life, people would come to help you to get out of it, but trust yourself that you can do it.
It’s all about you, if you can’t make yourself the best, trust me, even people who would loving to help you, still won’t be able to do unless you try for it. Success, love and happiness starts right where you are. It starts where you are. You are the architect of your success, of your dreams, of your happiness, of your problems; shortly, we can say, YOU are the architect of your Life. It’s all up to you to succeed or fail. There are 4-5 lines I read today somewhere which caught my attention. It was,
Love your life,
Flirt with your understanding,
Romance with your dreams,
Get engaged with simplicity,
Marry genuineness,
Divorce ego,
That’s a good life.
Well, this would be best thing if you implicate it in your life.
