Are You A Vision Builder?By
Anyone who builds visions is acting on an honorable altruistic innate desire to give more and gain more in life. Anyone, who is on a path of firsts has been stuck, frustrated, fearful, stressed and lost his/her focus. He/she might berate him/herself because of it. You are not alone in your struggles.
Knowing your experiences are shared is powerful and comforting. Instead of feeling alone, defeated, frustrated and stressed, you can feel strengthened knowing that your fellow strivers have gone through similar experiences.
When you birth a project or personal growth you might have a sense of going through a tight squeeze. Like an infant’s birthing process, projects/goals have three stages – beginning, middle and end. It is in the rough spots along the way that people want to escape the hard labor.
Escaping is easy; holding one’s convictions for success is the challenge. You might need to learn how to navigate in a new way. It is in the rough spots that you learn how to manage the frustrations and hard work that come with life and fulfilling your vision.
An American Buddhist teacher, Pema Chodron, calls this, ‘The Squeeze.” Whether one is going through the birth canal to achieve life, itself, or one is working on birthing personal growth or a goal, one has the challenge of sticking to one’s convictions. Chodrom defines ‘The Squeeze” as “a point where we are not able to take it or leave it, where we are caught between a rock and a hard place, caught with both the up-lift of our ideal and the rawness of what’s transpiring in front of our eyes…” and, that she says, “is a very fruitful place.”
It is in the rough spots that you learn the most. Keeping this in mind will assist you to feel less alone, because you are not the only one who feels ‘The Squeeze.’ There are many energy forces and changes pulsing through the Universe at every level. It goes without, saying, you are part of the growing process and the growing pains.
You can remember this truth when your struggles overwhelm your state of mind and you are tempted to waste energy on negative thoughts.
You might recall a trite expression, ‘We are all in this together,’ with gratitude and encouragement. Stay strong. Stay focused. You will prevail no matter how steep the climb. ###
