----------- "The purpose of pain is to move us in action, not to make us suffer." – Tony Robbins Pain gets a bad rap. Not in our world. If we can frame pain for what it is, action for the betterment of ourselves, we redefine what this feeling means to us. As Tony Robbins puts it, it’s purpose is to move us forward. It’s leverage. An advantage, and a very powerful one at that. Few things in the world can get a human being to move faster than pain. We recognize to do anything great, it’s going to be uncomfortable. Our body is going to resist it - change is hard. Change all too often has plenty of pain involved. What pain is not however, is suffering. Pain is a feeling, where suffering is a state of mind. Those that can endure pain and value it for the heights it pushes us towards, will reap the benefits. If we fall into the trap however of emotionally despising it, we’ll naturally avoid it. And it’s the daily reaction to this pain that compounds to dramatically different results over time. Pain is mandatory, suffering is optional.
