You can learn from anything
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve learned a lesson from the weirdest places. It’s like the Karate Kid movies where Mr. Miyagi is making Daniel do weird things like wash the windows and floors, yet he derives a lesson from these tasks.
I think the weirdest situation that ever taught me a lesson was when I was sitting on a log in Georgia. I was at Fort Benning at basic training in 2012, looking at my friend, Reyes. I learned that no matter how bad life gets, you can bounce back.
Look at all experiences as a lesson to be learned. Flat tire? Learn patience and preparedness. Broke? Learn your lesson about spending too much.
ACTION STEPS – Look at a struggle or high in your life and find a lesson buried in it.
