Episode 241: No Pain, No Gain

Pain is good. It can save your life.  It can tell you if something is wrong.  It can show you where to grow. If you keep experiencing the same pain over and over again with something in your life, it’s a clear indication that this is an area that requires growth in order to stop the pain.  

One of the biggest misunderstandings we have around pain is that we don’t like it and it’s not a good thing. Nobody wants to experience it. We’re taught to try to go through life avoiding as much pain as possible. When you stop to really think about it, pain is necessary for growth so steering clear of it contradicts any kind of growth in our life. Where would the idea come from? It has to do with fear.
