Challenges are part of Life. Indeed, they are the core part of Life. The evolution that the world continually experiences is the simple result of a series of challenges, overcome adversity defeated and difficulties overthrown. While we must accept them as our greatest teachers and embrace them as our ways to mastering ourselves, we all begin by being intimidated and overwhelmed when one comes forth and defy our strength.
Here is a list of five tips to help you welcome challenges as nothing to be feared but something to be grateful for.
1). Change your perception
Challenges can be seen either as a mountain that stands before you or as an opportunity to get on an amazing journey to climb to the top. The way you perceive what is brought before you determines the way you will handle the situation. When seen as an obstacle, a challenge will make you become an opponent (resistance). When perceived as a lesson, it will make you become a student (Growth).
2). Welcome change
A challenge is an ally to your growth. Like any friend who comes to support your greatness, you must welcome it with enthusiasm and curiosity. Change is the necessary space to embrace for anyone to reach a greater sense of fulfillment. Challenge is the guardian of this space and only by treating the guardian as a treasured gate keeper can you ensure its collaboration.
3). Enlarge your vision
A Challenge is a servant offering you a treasure. Although it holds it for you, it also won’t deliver it until you treat the servant as worthy of your mastery. One element that will give you a way to want to master yourself is your ability to understand what the challenge is teaching you and what is the gift you are offered as a result. Once you realize what this wisdom is, keep your focus on it and challenge will appear clearer and worthy.
4). Claim your power
A challenge is a friend asking you to claim your power, hold onto it tight and use it to move through the illusory wall it presents. Adversity calls for inner-strength and the gathering of one’s inner-potential. It is a step to success, self-empowerment and self-growth.
5). Remember your dream
A challenge is nothing more than a step to get you closer to your dream. Remember that the dream you were able to envision is possible for your heart. When a challenge is brought before you, it is your mind that consider it, not your heart. Remember which part of you that dreamed your dream and live your challenging situation from this place. When you hold a challenge in your heart, it simply becomes a building stone to your success. Nothing more & Nothing Less.
