Sometimes feeling pain can be a good thing. You just have to look at it the right way.
So says the billionaire entrepreneur and financier Ray Dalio.
“There is no avoiding pain, especially if you’re going after ambitious goals. Believe it or not, you are lucky to feel that kind of pain if you approach it correctly, because it is a signal that you need to ﬁnd solutions so you can progress,” Dalio says in a July Facebook post.
The key, says Dalio, is to get into a routine of analyzing why you are experiencing pain.
“If you can develop a reflexive reaction to psychical pain that causes you to reflect on it rather than avoid it, it will lead to your rapid learning/evolving,” Dalio writes.
