The three types of pain
Firstly, you can have an accident (or illness), break a bone, and be in a ton of pain. The bone will grow back stronger, but that might not be much consolation for what happened up to that point. Would’ve been best if it never happened in the first place.
Secondly, you can have heartbreak - from a failed relationship, business venture, or project. This kind of pain probably could’ve been avoided, but all isn’t lost because (if you’re smart) you’ll learn a lot and use this to help you in the future.
Thirdly, you can suffer the type of pain one experiences during the course of advancement. The first few weeks of going to the gym will be agonising, but you’ll be much better for it. The year of sleeping 5-6 hours a night whilst you get your side business off the ground will pay dividends.
Obviously, the third type of pain is the one that we should actively seek out because it’s worth so much and you can create change.
Which type of pain are you suffering?
