MOTM #567: Is Struggle a Prerequisite for Success?

Monday, April 1st, 2024

For whatever reasons, we—and by we, I mean society—tends to glorify struggling. We see overcoming obstacles as some sort of moral victory and that those who are successful must have struggled in order to get there. Does that mean you *need* to struggle in order to have success? Y’all, of course not. You can go through difficult shit AND you can be successful, but one doesn’t necessarily cause the other.

Let’s chat.

Welcome to Maestro on the Mic, a podcast that helps online business owners find their passion, generate more profit, and build a life that they love. I'm your host, Dr. Shanté Cofield, aka The Movement Maestro, and I’m stoked to have you here. I hope this podcast inspires you to make moves and do the thing. Action is the answer.

In This Episode You'll Hear:

  • Society champions struggle too much
  • Hard-work is not the same as struggle
  • Subjectivity + relativity in “struggle”
  • Struggle can open eyes to others’ lived experiences
