Choose a challenge

Would you like to energize your life, grow stronger and more confident? Then choose a challenge for yourself, something positive and meaningful to you, something that will push you to the next level.

Have you ever noticed that, on days when you have a lot of work to do, you get a lot done? And on days when you don’t have much you have to do, you don’t get much done. Just as your effort increases to meet the job that must be done, so too do you grow enough to meet the challenges that you take on. Becoming the person you want to be is largely a matter of following the challenges that will take you there.

Sure, you already have a lot of challenges in your life. So why would you choose to take on any more? Because by choosing your challenges you take powerful, positive control over the direction of your life. By choosing to take on a challenge, you express confidence in a way that cannot be denied.

Choose a challenge, one that will take you far. Then push it, prod it, hold on to in and enjoy the magnificent ride.
