Ray Dalio in his book “Principles- life and work” said that pain is a signal that you need to find a solution so that you can progress. Reflecting well while you are in pain gives us the most important lessons needed for your growth and progress.
Carl Jung once said,”Man need difficulties. They are necessary for health.” These difficulties generates pain which when reflected generates progress.
When you are not in pain, you won’t push your limit. No pushing your limit means not maximizing your potential. Not maximizing your potential means no progress. The most important thing here is the reflection, which is the lessons and the strength learned and gained during the pain.
So pain + reflection is always a progress…
