The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.

Energized by the challenges

When everything seems to be going wrong, remember this. Your problems do not define you, and your circumstances do not control you.

Yes, the situation is serious. And yes, you can rise above it.

You can choose a positive intention, and you can choose to act on it. You can rid your mind of doubt, of fear, and do your work with courage and commitment.

The negativity of the moment intimidates you only if you let it. Remind yourself always, you don’t have to let it.

Focus instead on whatever you can do to make a positive difference. Start small, achieve a minor victory, and keep going, keep building on it.

It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the problems, yet you always have another choice. Decide instead to be energized by the challenges, and activate your ability to transform that energy into achievement.
