Is Life Difficult?

Yesterday we spoke about the fact that we are already living and using the fundamental principles of life, it’s just that we may be using them unknowingly to get what we don’t want instead of what we do want. So why is it so important we understand this and how would principles enable you to better deal with the problems of life? Read on to find out…

There’s a great book called The Road Less Travelled by M. Scott Peck and the first line really resonates with me every time I read it…

“Life is difficult.
This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult. Once we truly understand and accept it. Then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

Why am I sharing this with you? Am I saying that life gets easy once we accept that it’s difficult? Not at all – at Lighthouse we know ourselves that to apply these things can be challenging, which is why our main focus is helping people to do that. The point is that there are certain fundamental principles that can guide us through life’s challenges (as the video below will show). Once we accept that life will present us with problems to overcome, then the degree to which we feel frustration over them reduces. In fact we can then start to appreciate and enjoy our challenges because they give us an opportunity to become better, stronger and learn something new.

Changing our perception of our problems, or changing our outlook on anything really is a fundamental of living a great life, it’s a component of the first and most important principle – Personal Vision. We’ll explore it more over the coming weeks but the video below really hits home the critical importance of principles in our lives of constant change. It’s from one of the most profound authors on human potential of recent times – Dr Stephen R. Covey and I urge you to check it out below…

What is the most difficult problem you are facing right now that if you solved, would make this an amazing year?
