One of my friends, along with many other people out there are currently in jobs or situations they are not quite happy with. Even though he’s not happy in his current position, he loves the organisation and his goal is to move to a department or another role that will provide him with the ability to create the change he would like to see. I truly believe these experiences would help to make him an exceptional manager, one who is in touch with the issues plaguing his staff and one who is focused on creating changes to improve the culture of the organisation, improve the environment for the workers and improve the quality of service delivered to customers. It’s as if the Universe is allowing him to experience first hand, the effects of processes within the organisation that need to be changed. Yes, it may be tough to deal with some of the situations but without having gone through it himself, he would have little desire to create the necessary change. There is purpose in everything, especially in our struggles. It’s as if life is putting our backs against a wall to force something to be stirred up within us, to inspire us to take some kind of action. I know firsthand what it feels like to be unhappy in a particular role or situation. These are usually the times I ask myself “What is the Universe trying to teach me”, “What changes do I need to make in my life” and “What is it I’m doing wrong”. I usually end by telling myself “I’ll figure it out”. There is always purpose in pain and struggles. Imagine going through life without any kind of experience to test or improve your character. If the Universe brought you to it, there is already a way to get you through it. From struggles we are able to share our experiences to give others hope to add some value to their lives, we gain this amazing strength in character so life starts to become easier and we begin to value the things that are really important in life. Find purpose in your pain and you’ll have so much in life to gain.
