Challenges you face

When something is holding you back, don’t add to its negative power. Put your energy into working your way around it.

When you see an obstacle in your path, don’t continue to curse it or blame it for your lack of progress. Immediately start working to get beyond it.

If you hear yourself making excuses, you have a powerful opportunity. Stop making excuses and start making changes that will render those excuses inoperative.

Realize that whatever is standing in your way is challenging you to look for new options. Seize that challenge, find a more workable option, and act to implement it.

Pause for just a moment and reconnect yourself with your purpose. Feel the driving power that has already brought you successfully to this point.

Then fully apply that power to the challenges you now face. Before long, you’ll have put yourself well beyond them.

— Ralph Marston
