Someone once told me – Life sure would be a lot easier if I didn’t have all these challenges to overcome! Of course I think we would all agree with that statement but the truth of the matter is, if there are no challenges then there are no changes.
Challenge brings change – PERIOD! There is no other way around it and though that often brings difficult and intense moments into our lives, it is necessary for growth. I for one, do not want to be a person who refuses to grow and although I may not like the way growth comes into my life, it is extremely necessary!
In fact I have learned 3 things when it comes to facing a challenge:
- I can refuse to face it
- I can complain and gripe about it or….
- I can embrace it and welcome it knowing it is bringing about something good in my life.
The key is attitude! If you know me, you know I am big on attitude. Attitude determines direction and direction is more important than speed! (TWEET THIS) It is all in your perception of the challenge that you are facing. I have been privileged to speak to hundreds of thousands of young people in my short 46 years of life and I tell them each time I get the opportunity – I could let the challenge of having one hand stop me and keep me sidelined from life or I can embrace it and allow it to push me higher and make me stronger.
It all starts with the attitude you possess about the challenge you face. See those challenges as opportunities instead of obstacles. Embrace them like you would embrace an old friend. Know that they are brought into your life to change you into what you were created to become.
That is all! Have a good day….
