Challenge to move forward

Without challenge, there would be no achievement. If you wish to own the achievement, you must be willing to shoulder the challenge.

Working through a difficult challenge builds strength. It is a kind of strength that cannot be acquired in any other way.

Challenges are messy, uncomfortable, complicated and demanding. And yet, they are among life’s greatest blessings.

For the challenges will make it perfectly clear what has real meaning in your life and what doesn’t. The challenges hold your priorities up to you and will show you the best of who you are.

Climbing the mountain of challenge is difficult and treacherous, yet the view from the summit is spectacular. And the experience you gain in the effort will continue to bring value long after the work is done.

You are truly fortunate to have challenges in your life. For within every challenge is a clearly defined path for moving vigorously and meaningfully forward.

— Ralph Marston
