Things that inspire me come in many forms, and in this case it came from Rabbi Abraham Twerski on what stress really means. As a creative, and as an entrepreneur, the stress levels constantly dip and spike on our journey. When stress is low, it’s an indicator that we’ve balanced out and probably have some sort of stability at that moment. That’s not always a good thing. Rabbi Twerski talks about the importance of stress and it challenged me to see the good in it. He cleverly uses an analogy with a lobster that you have to check out.

“I think that we have to realize that times of stress, are also times that are signals for growth, and if we use adversity properly we can grow through adversity” – Abraham Twerski-
