Read a really good article by Seth Godin on Trading in your pain that points to two obvious mistakes that people make when in pain:
1. The notion that you can trade your way out of pain.
2. Embracing your current pain and avoiding newer, unknown pains.
I am in accordance to his viewpoint about these being the obvious mistakes. What people (at least I) do want to know is the third option. Unfortunately, a lot of us are unaware of the third choice that we can make or are too much in pain to be receptive to it.
Side Note: ‘Miracle’ is the only third choice that comes to my mind. Anything that comes to you mind?
