Through Difficulty Blooms Possibility

Written By: Lindsey Rice

Every obstacle overcome commands strength and wisdom you previously may not have had access to. It is important, then, to make the most of the challenges set before us. It is through extreme pressure diamonds are formed; in kind, we too can become something greater. Experience of all kinds leads to discovery, but growth in difficult times hits harder than when in good times. This growth unlocks character, solutions, opportunities; this type of growth greatly helps to unveil the magic of you.

You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore, before you decide to be happy.


Jane Kristen Marczewski was diagnosed with cancer in 2017, but was a powerful inspiration to over millions of viewers after sharing her voice and her story on AGT.

“It’s important that everyone knows I’m so much more than the bad things that happened to me.” She had a 2% chance at survival, to which she said, “Two percent is something, and I wish people knew how amazing it is.”

Jane’s legacy demonstrates what is possible even when the cards are stacked against you. When you follow your heart and your passion to make the most of the time you have while your alive. You are ok!

You know what they say, “when life gives you lemons..” I know I know. But we CAN convert difficult times into value. If our output during better times was compared to standard unleaded gasoline, our output under less than stellar conditions It can be fuel likened that of jet fuel.

Ask yourself:

  • Is there a lesson here?
  • How will this time of difficulty shape my life?
  • Where can I apply myself to maximize personal growth?
  • How can I be loving to others and myself during such challenges?

Usually the mind will give up before the body, but when you overcome the surrendering mind your thoughts can begin shaping reality. Through a shift in perceptions we can experience a light form of miracle. More on miracles in my next post. When you overcome the mind knowing your thoughts create reality.

With this insight you allow yourself to dance in the mystery of life; open to the magic of limitless possibilities.
