Seize the challenges

You have survived every single challenge that has come your way. And when you look back on the things you’ve done, it is clear that not only have you survived those challenges, they have caused you to learn, to grow, to become stronger.

Challenge is difficult, and it is valuable as well. Challenge can energize. Challenge can focus. Challenge can turn mere passing interest into rock solid commitment. It can turn mediocre into exceptional. In the long run, challenge pays off with big rewards.

One of the surest ways to move your life forward is through challenge. Sometimes the challenges are forced upon you. But you don’t have to wait for challenges to come your way.

Seek out challenges for the value they offer. Improve the quality of your life by increasing the level of your challenges. You’ve already made it through a lifetime of challenges. Continue to find more that will move you ahead and compel you to become even stronger. Seize the challenges and you’ll grasp your dreams.
