This Has Been The Most Painful Year Of My Life!

by AJ Mihrzad on

I had no idea I’d lose my ability to walk, have multiple surgeries & deal with so much excruciating pain. I’m doing my best to stay strong, but it hasn’t been easy. Rather than sharing the highlights of my life, I prefer to show you my reality & it ain’t pretty.

It’s now been 6 months since my accident & my leg is stiff with limited range of motion.

I have to wear this painful brace & stretch my leg while I stare at the ceiling for 6 hours a day.ย ๐Ÿ˜”

Sadly, I may need another surgery, which sucks!

Sure, I can bitch & moan with how bad my life is.

But truth be told,

I am Grateful for a lot of things, despite this bum leg.ย ๐Ÿ™

In reality, this pain has taught me A LOT!

I’ve come to realize that ๐—ฎ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐—ฆ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—น๐˜† ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ.

๐Ÿ†™ย I noticed that we always get tested,
right before we Progress to the Next Level.ย ๐Ÿ†™

โŒย I remember when I got fired from a job & shortly after I started my own business. This lead me to my life’s purpose.

โŒย Having a near death experience & being in a coma for a week lead me to the Greatest Uplevleing I Ever experienced!

โŒย Getting a surprise $360,000 tax bill from the IRS showed me that I can create 10X more Abundance.

โŒย Even this freak Accident that happened in Brazil led me to meet a beautiful Brazilian namedย Rafaela.ย ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท

This is the Advantage of Pain.

The more you experience, the more you can handle in the future, & the less it knocks you off your game.

The way you perceive that pain is another matter,
which Iโ€™ll talk about in a moment…

For now, the point I want to make is this:

If you feel depressed & are unable to cope with the difficulties of life,

itโ€™s not because you are a “Weak Person”.

Itโ€™s because you were unprepared for the “unexpected pain” you are experiencing.

Read that again๐Ÿ‘†

The problem is that you havenโ€™t suffered enough.

The opposite is also true.

๐Ÿ†™ย If you want to become Stronger.

The smartest thing you can do is to systematically (& safely) increase your pain tolerance.ย ๐Ÿ†™

A simple example that’s helped me my entire life is working out beyond my limits.

When I was younger I was overweight.

It wasn’t until my 20’s where I discovered fitness & I lost over 60 lbs!

Pushing my body beyond its comfort zone to lose all that fat
& add muscle was an extremely Painful Process.

But I learned to LOVE the soreness after every workout because I knew I was making PROGRESS.ย ๐Ÿ’ช

The same discipline that forced my fat boy genes to get to 6% bodyfat helped me
become a self-made millionaire, even though I grew up in poverty.

Don’t have a GYM?

Well, get off your ass, go outside & JOG as FAR as you can!

When your Lungs are Burning & your Legs are Cramping,

you can Celebrate because you just broke through a new limit.

BTW, I would literally give ANYTHING to Jog right now, so please don’t take your legs for granted…ย ๐Ÿฆต

Like my man David Goggins says,

“You have to build calluses on your mind just like how you build calluses on your hands.
You Callus your mind by overcoming pain.”

The bottom line?

๐Ÿ”ฅย The degree of success you achieve in life is directly proportional to the amount of pain you can tolerate.ย ๐Ÿ”ฅ

If you ever want to accomplish BIG things like building a million dollar business, getting into the best shape of your life,
or changing the world in a powerful way,

โญ๏ธย You Need to start training yourself to endure the pain all those things require.ย โญ๏ธ

Itโ€™ll also prepare you for the next time life punches you in the face, which is inevitable.

โŒย By no means do I enjoy Pain.

โŒย I would LOVE to avoid Pain & make Progress with Pleasure.

But Life isn’t built like that.

โŒย You will Fail.
โŒย You will get Hurt.
โŒย Your heart will get broken.
โŒย Someone close to you will die.

Rather than avoiding these inevitable experiences,
Accept Adversity as a Way to Growย ๐Ÿ†™

Pain is a part of progress.
Anything that grows experiences pain.

If you avoid pain,
you avoid growth.

โค๏ธย Learn how to get comfortable being uncomfortable.

When you become comfortable with uncertainty,
infinite possibilities will open up in your life.ย โค๏ธ
