Art does not solve problems but makes us aware of their existence. It opens our eyes to see and our brain to imagine.

Rise to the challenge

When confronted with a challenge, take the golden opportunity to rise to that challenge. You most certainly can do it, and when you do you’ll move your own life, and the world around you, positively forward.

Throughout history the toughest challenges are what have brought about the most valuable and lasting achievements. Those who are challenged, when they rise to that challenge, grow stronger. It’s already happened in your life. You’ve survived every challenge that has come your way, and each one has made you stronger. You’ve learned, you’ve grown, you’ve gained confidence and wisdom.

See each challenge for the opportunity it is. It may be painful and difficult, uncomfortable and scary, and yet you have what it takes to transcend that challenge and grow stronger as a result. After you’ve gone through the challenge, when you look back on it, you’ll be thankful for the value gained in the experience.

Rise to the challenges and you’ll raise your expectations, your confidence, your competence and your reality to levels higher than ever before.
