Turn off your struggle switch

For today’s challenge, see if you can identify what passengers turn on your “struggle switch.” Then try to turn it off by saying to yourself, “Today I notice that I am feeling [insert emotion]/having the thought of [insert painful thought]….AND… I’m going to do [insert values-consistent goal] anyway!” Notice the crucial word here “AND.” You don’t have to get rid of those experiences to do what matters. Turning off your struggle switch means noticing that they are there, without directly trying to influence them, and then choosing to do what matters anyway by bringing them along for the ride.
