Let's face it. It is hard to be human sometimes. So, when yet another unexpected event—sometimes jokingly called an "FGO" or F*cking Growth Opportunity by my personal development warriors—causes us to question where we stand, we can also question if we are really growing at all and, if maybe, we are doing something wrong.
Fact is, sometimes, life's changes and challenges can leave us afraid that these struggles—despite all best efforts—actually amount to nothing. It's this fear that, somewhere along your journey, you've missed minor (or major!) markers in your life. Ever feel like your life will be, can be, or potentially is, without real purpose sometimes?
It is especially easy to feel this fear if, in the moment, all your personal growth risks aren't reaping immediate rewards.
Knowing your unique and irreplaceable role, really helps you face this fear that you being you doesn't make a difference! It helps you enjoy a larger perspective when you are momentarily in the muck of feeling stuck.
