Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.

Every challenge

You have made it through every challenge you’ve ever faced. And you have what it takes to get through many, many more. It can be frightening to stretch yourself and test your strength. It can also be energizing, and invigorating.

Overcoming a difficult challenge can bring you to a level of satisfaction which cannot be reached in any other way. Along with that satisfaction comes the solid confidence of knowing for certain that you’ve done it before and you can do it again.

When you seek challenge what you end up getting is achievement. By welcoming each challenge you’re expressing and expanding your own confidence in a way that is truly genuine and enduring.

There was a time when you were challenged by many of the things you now can do without even thinking about them. Think of how far you’ve come as a result of your willingness to take on those challenges. And think of how very far you still can go when you welcome each challenge as the great opportunity it can be.
