There's a dangerous misperception about success. We tend to think that once we get to a certain level of "success" that it's smooth sailing from there and we're over the challenges that we once experienced.
In regard to business, that might be challenges with getting clients, challenges with managing your workload, challenges with finances, challenges with difficult clients, etc.
The TRUTH is that success is not a straight line. And once you get to a certain level of success (and even the "levels" can vary), there are still going to be challenges. They may be similar challenges coming up that you experienced at a previous level, new challenges ("new level, new devil"), or similar challenges on a larger scale.
And even though it feels really frustrating–and often really scary–when things seem to be falling apart or bearing down on you (I've been there many times), the "breakdown" is really just clearing the way for a "breakthrough" to arrive. But the longer you RESIST the lessons and opportunities it's presenting, the longer the breakthrough will take to arrive.
So, when you're going through the breakdown, how can you help turn it into the breakthrough?
