Confront it

The worst thing you can do when faced with a challenge is to run away from it. Because it will come after you, and will gain even more strength. If you think it’s bad now, just wait until it has grown bigger and stronger. You’ll regret that you did not choose to face it sooner.

Confront your challenges as quickly as you can. You’ll make far more progress that way. Going forward through the obstacles may indeed be difficult. Yet it is a far better path than going backwards in retreat.

Sooner or later you must work your way through the challenges that stand between you and your goals. The sooner you do it, the better. It will never be easy, but there’s no need to make it more difficult than it has to be.

Move yourself forward. Push a little harder when you need to. Confront the challenges as they come, get them quickly behind you, and you can go as far as you want.

— Ralph Marston
