The book, Tough Times Never Last but Tough People do, by Robert Schuller (A Christian Televangelist and Motivational Speaker) mainly discusses how we can overcome obstacles. The book boosts your faith and helps you overcome worry when facing difficulty.
I read the book twice and I think it’s one of the most motivating books I’ve ever read. I learned powerful lessons from it and I would love to share them with you.
- People who Overcome Obstacles Never Stop Believing.
According to Schuller, the people who overcome life’s challenges never stop believing in themselves and The Creator. They often pray for guidance and they trust the ideas the universe gives them.
- Every Problem has a Limited Lifespan
Schuller teaches that no problem lasts forever because you’ll always find a solution. According to Schuller, history is the best teacher of the fact that all our problems have a limited lifespan because all our past problems ended after a certain period.
Therefore, just like our previous hardships, our current hurdles will come to an end.
Storms always pave way for the sun, and winter always thaws into spring. Your storm will, therefore, pass – Robert Schuller
- Every Problem will Change You
Schuller writes that an individual cannot emerge from a problem unchanged, because problems never leave us the way they found us. They make us stronger and enable us to realize our faults.
- Ask God/Infinite Intelligence to Help you Solve your Problems
According to Schuller, whenever we have problems, we must give God/Infinite Intelligence a chance to turn our problems into blessings. He also teaches that God/Infinite Intelligence will give you the strength to deal with your problems if you pray and stop exaggerating them.
- Problems Disappear if we Dedicate All our Efforts to Solving Them
Robert Schuller teaches that some of your problems never leave because you never dedicate all your energies to solving them. He believes that these problems will melt away if you use all your intelligence, abilities, and skills to solve them.
- Never Discard an Idea because There is Something Wrong With It
Robert Schuller teaches that there is no such thing as a perfect idea because all ideas have negative aspects. For this reason, we must never let these negative aspects prevent us from executing our ideas. Instead, we must focus on exploiting the positive aspects and sublimating the negative parts.
