If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.

Make each challenge pay

Challenge can make you stop, or it can make you unstoppable. It all depends on how you respond.

Challenge can compel you to make valuable improvements that you never would have attempted otherwise. Challenge can open your eyes to a whole new level of possibilities.

When the challenges come, gladly accept the energy that they have to give you. Greet each challenge with the expectation that it will make you stronger, more capable, more experienced, more effective.

Then jump right in and get to work on that challenge. The more quickly and enthusiastically you get started, the more real value you’ll be able to gain.

Challenge will give you the opportunity to discover how very much you can accomplish. And knowing how much you can accomplish sets you up to accomplish even more.

When there is a challenge in your life, it’s only a matter of time and effort before that challenge can be transformed into a real and lasting treasure. Take the time, put forth the effort, and you’ll surely make each challenge pay.
