Challenge Your Problems
Life teaches us in peculiar ways. It knocks us down. It makes us struggle to get back up.
Blessings often appear as misfortunes and trials. When we challenge problems with solution-focused thought, needs are filled. We improve the lives of others and ourselves.
Challenging a problem begins with embracing it rather than resisting it. Accepting the truth about what is so places us in a position to learn and move forward.
Of course we will not have positive, accepting feelings each time life knocks us down. Yet we need not allow feelings of frustration to define our outcomes.
We can examine our thoughts and choose constructive reactions, responding consciously. Our faith and determination can be stronger than any misfortune.
Within each storm of life is hidden a key that will unlock another door that you were meant to walk through.
What has been the greatest challenge that you have conquered? What thoughts strengthened you to rise above this challenge? What blessings did you receive?
Challenge each problem you face with purposeful thought and determined action. Resolve that every situation you encounter will make you better, stronger, wiser, more skillful, and more loving.
By challenging problems with faith and conviction, you will create experiences of joy and lasting treasure.
