As I grow older, I realize that there IS a purpose for every challenge I face. That is, if I choose to examine it. That purpose, I have determined, is internal GROWTH.
Please feel free to view life's challenges as presented below:
I Recognize that a challenge is not necessarily thrown my way to hurt me
I Recognize that a challenge is a message for me to try a different approach from what I have done previously
I Recognize that a challenge is meant for me to eliminate old fears and see how strong I really am
I Recognize that a challenge, if used well, brings forth a whole new world of opportunities
Finally, internal growth need not stop, unless we choose to stunt ourselves. Therefore:
I Recognize that I keep facing challenges because I have demonstrated the will and capacity to GROW.
