“Rather than fighting what seems to be blocking your path, pivot on it and make it your ally. As in the martial art of aikido, you can take the energy directed against you and rechannel it to help you. Everything is energy; what you do with it is up to you.
Difficulties keep us on the cutting edge of growth and move us to levels of authority far more rewarding that if the challenge had not occurred. All evolutionary advances have resulted from novel adaptations to changes in environmental conditions. Life is not trying to hurt you; it is trying to get you to grow. As Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.”
Alan Cohen, in “Relax into Wealth”
