I’ve mentioned many times that these blogs are often inspired by conversations with people.

Because if one or five people are struggling with something, unsure about what to do, etc…………

Then they’ll probably be hundreds (these blogs were read by people in 94 countries last month alone) more who might read this that might find the same.

The other day, a number of people said to me some variation of “I’m struggling”.

And my response, whilst individual to each, was a variation of;

“That’s good”.

Because it is.

Struggling gets a bad name.

The dictionary defines struggling as;

“striving to achieve or attain something in the face of difficulty or resistance”

So, if we’re not struggling, what are we doing?

Not striving to achieve anything?

If there is no difficulty or resistance is it much of an achievement?

Nothing in life worth doing is easy they say.

Without struggle, what is there?

The opposite of “struggling” isn’t “easy”.

It’s ‘Boredom’.


Wasted opportunity.

Struggling is fine.

It’s good.

It shows we’re trying.

It shows we’re going in the right direction.

Or, at least, going in the wrong one way less quickly than we would be if we weren’t struggling.

If we get to our death bed and look back on a life where we never struggled, will we be happy with that?

Or will we think about what we could’ve done?

“What a waste”.

So, don’t worry when it’s a struggle.

It’s good thing.

Struggle on, my friend 🙂

Much love,
