Challenges… this is a word EVERYONE understands in this life! Everyone must face them throughout their lifetime. THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN COMPLETELY AVOID CHALLENGES IN THIS LIFE! THEY ARE A PART OF LIFE! If I were to take a survey and ask individuals if they feel negative or positive toward this word, most will say NEGATIVE. But what if we could start a revolution amongst EVERYONE? What if we could change our perspective to start seeing challenges as a positive opportunity? What would happen?
Like anyone else, my life has not been short of challenges. Throughout most of my life, I not only hated challenges, but I also feared them. Sometimes I would do everything I could to avoid a challenge, even if that meant not trying something or going somewhere I wanted to go. However, over the past 10+ years as a network marketer, I was forced out of this mindset. I had no choice but to face challenge after challenge, and I could not walk away from them. I had no choice but to face them head-on because there was no way I was going to leave my marketing family to face them alone.
At first, I hated each challenge that arose. I looked at them as inconveniences. But over time I learned to appreciate them because I saw myself transform through them. I saw myself become stronger, smarter, better through each challenge that I overcame.
So, I ask you… do you want to be like most of the world that fear a challenge or hardship and allow those moments to hold them back, or do you want to be a champion who learns to embrace each challenge? Do you want to use the UNAVOIDABLE challenges that arise to propel you to your best self or let them tear you down? Challenges are going to arise… I choose to embrace them, and I encourage you to do the same!
Next time you see a challenge coming your way, face it head-on and tell yourself from the moment that challenge hits you that you are going to use this challenge to make you better. Then keep yourself focused on that mindset. Tell yourself, "I have to face it, so I am going to use it to empower me!! I will NOT let this challenge hinder me!! Instead, I will make this challenge EMPOWER ME!!" You can learn from each challenge that arises so that you will become more equipped for the next challenge! You can look at each challenge as a learning opportunity. Look at your life as an obstacle course that ends with you becoming the CHAMPION OF YOUR LIFE!!
We can’t control our lives! As a matter of fact, most of our lives are completely out of our control, but that does NOT make us helpless. We can’t control the results of our circumstances, but we can control how we deal with them. We can control how we feel about them and how we think through these moments. We can control our character development!
BECOME EMPOWERED, BECOME BETTER, BECOME STRONGER THROUGH EACH CHALLENGE TO BECOME A BETTER YOU!!! YOU CAN DO THIS!! LET’S START THIS REVOLUTION TOGETHER!!!
Be blessed ALWAYS!
