As a student of personal growth, you know that every challenge has in it the seeds of an equal or greater opportunity. But here’s the catch…
That opportunity is only there if you choose to seek it out. And most people won’t.
Did you ever mess up a presentation? Of course you did. We all did. But the successful people learned from that and made a commitment to getting better. They looked for the lesson the universe was sending them.
It’s not when everything is going great that your breakthroughs happen. It’s when things are going horrible!
When your top leader quits and goes to another company…. When you get rejected six times in a row… When there’s negative publicity about your company…
That’s when you grow. That’s where the breakthroughs live. But only if you make the decision to grow and learn from the challenges. Write this affirmation out and put it on your computer screen, refrigerator or bathroom mirror:
I celebrate my challenges, because they are my stepping-stones to enlightenment.
Remember a dry spell causes a tree’s root to go deeper. The things you get from success are great. But the best reward is who you become. That’s what this journey is really about.
You up for it?
