Meet the challenges

Challenges are the defining moments. Challenges can bring you power, wealth, influence, respect and fulfillment, if you let them. Or, if you let them, challenges can pull you down.

It all depends upon how the challenges are met. Try to avoid them, and they will nibble away at you until you have nothing left. Meet them head on, with purpose and energy and resourcefulness, and you will grow and prosper.

Challenges leverage and magnify your character, your discipline, your purpose. Whether that is a positive or a negative for your life, depends on you.

Be prepared for the challenges, meet them with anticipation, and they will shape your life into one of excellence and achievement.

— Ralph Marston
