A world of possibility

That challenge which stands in your way -- someone will be energized by it and will direct that energy toward a great achievement. That excuse you’re tempted to claim -- someone will see it not as an excuse, but as a compelling reason to move forward. That task you consider to be beneath you -- someone will take it upon themselves to get it done and enjoy rich rewards as a result.

That obstacle blocking your path -- someone will see an opportunity in it and will triumph as a result. Will it be you? It certainly can be. Those things which frustrate you, inconvenience you, or make you uncomfortable can indeed be filled with positive value. In each of life’s difficulties is the opportunity, the potential for making life better.

You stand today on the verge of greatness. Building blocks of that greatness are imbedded in the challenges and obstacles which regularly come your way. The biggest, longest-lasting, most meaningful triumphs come from the most difficult and formidable challenges. A world of possibility awaits you. Take up the challenge and claim it.
