Challenges are something we all deal with. The most important thing we can do when facing challenges is to think positive, move beyond them, learn and grow from them, and be adaptable.
Some people have mastered this concept. Others can learn it. Everyone has the power to take control of their lives and move forward. You can change course but always need to move forward.
Life is full of challenges. Some people seem to meet every challenge with confidence, while others struggle to overcome them. On some level, you actually seek challenges. Your highest Self wants you to learn and grow, and life’s most effective tool toward growth is experience.
All too often you find yourself faced with the same challenges over and over again, and that is when you lose motivation to face the issue and you lose sight of the potential lesson. At that point, challenges can become problems that can spiral you into despair and frustration.
As a creator of your own reality, you have the ability to overcome these challenges. It is with this sense of responsibility and Awareness that you can begin your journey into a higher state of Consciousness where challenges are no longer challenges, but opportunities to get a glimpse of your highest self.
Do not spend time looking for a way around the issue, or wallowing in despair at the enormity of the challenge. Even mundane things, like a pileup of laundry or work, you ignore. Putting a challenge off does not make it go away. This is true of big challenges, as well as the small ones. The most important thing you can do is face what is in front of you head on.
Do not underestimate the power of being present. If you make a practice of facing your challenges with full presence and Awareness, you will find most challenges are not challenges at all. Instead life’s challenges become messages from the universe.
No one ever solves your problems for you. Even in circumstances where someone else is acting as an authority or partner, only you can decide how you will process the situation.
The longer you spend searching for guidance outside of yourself, the longer you spend ignoring the problem. Stop looking for the easy way out or the wise words that will show you the way. Assess the situation, your resources, and your abilities, and then act.
Challenges are opportunities to grow. That growth takes place out of potentiality, your potentiality, which is infinite and highly active in every moment of life. Come to know yourself as that.
You are pure potential experiencing life through what seems like limitation. Challenges are spikes in that imaginary limitation barrier that guide you to Awareness.
