Ever watched The Avengers? Or any superhero movie?
How does an average man become a superhero?
Usually through a lot of pain, challenge, and resistance.
The chosen one has to persevere despite tremendous hardships. And we’re not talking about just physical ones.
The struggle with his ego and spirit is real. And the conflict tears him apart.
But why? Why bother with so much pain and resistance?
Because when he comes out the other side, he becomes the light that dispels darkness.
The transformation is not unworthy.
For the hero to conquer darkness, he MUST become the light.
The candle has to burn itself to shine its light.
We can’t achieve our dreams and desires without this burning. And if we want to be of service to the world, we have to become the light.
It is through PAIN and BURNING that one SHINES.
Take a moment to think about how your light can shine and brighten your family.
What will it take for that light to shine through? What resistance will you have to overcome?
And then, take the first step towards shining that light.
