Pressure Makes Diamonds

What comes to your mind when you hear that word?

Is it negative or positive?

I hear a lot of different opinions on this one. But, in my case I actually see it as a positive thing.

Pressure is something I enjoy. Yes. I like it.

It could be stressful, nerve-wracking, intense and sometimes a hassle. But, I like it.

If I have to reflect on the most valuable things I've learned in my life, they were out of pressure. "Pressure makes diamonds," as the saying goes. That is indeed true.

The reason I enjoy being under pressure is because it allows me to go out of my comfort zone. Once I do, I go through a process of facing my fears and learning a lot of new things.

This is how I grow as a person and become better with just about anything.

I hope you view it the same way. It's just a matter of perspective.

Without pressure, you won't have diamonds. You will only end up having a worthless coal.
