The “relationship” we have with pain is just like the relationship between cat and mice (cat being the pain). It’s something we try to avoid with all costs and no wonder because no one likes pain. Even though we try to run away from it, sometimes it touches us and what we do with that is essential for our future development (you can find here my post about pain and motivation).
For me, it’s very inspiring to hear people talking about how pain is somehow helpful for our development. There are some interesting thoughts about pain in the video below and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
It’s interesting to see that most of these people talk about pain as a driving force, as a power so it makes sense to refer to it as a fuel. As Tony Robbins says – Pain is mandatory, suffering is optional. What type of pain fuels you?
