Challenges in life are tests that I commit to passing.

The growth that I experience in life is due to opening myself to learning from even the toughest situations. They are an important part of the development of my character.

Responding to difficult times with high emotions is beneficial as long as I am able to bounce back. I allow myself to feel even the unwanted emotions.

They allow me to go through the course of dealing with the effects of a challenging time. After flushing my system of those feelings, I am able to focus on the solution. I believe that getting over something is a process with many steps.

The lesson that I take from each challenge is to use my experience as a guide for the future. I view each situation as a life lesson.

There are many opportunities that I go after but miss, yet I feel blessed to go through that experience. It gives me a chance to be retrospective and identify what changes are important for success the next time around.

I learn to accept whichever outcome I end up with. In life, all outcomes are valuable and important to a fulfilling life.

When I apply for a job that I am interested in, I balance confidence with cautiousness. It is important to manage my expectations.

Today, being challenged is like being given an opportunity to prove my strength. I relish those chances to acquire wisdom in my personal development.

Self-Reflection Questions:

    1. What are some of the most difficult challenges that I face?
    2. How do I turn a difficulty into a blessing?
    3. What lessons do I learn from losing a coveted opportunity?
    
    
Take a deep breath, close your eyes and see what comes to your mind for the next few minutes while you listen. Don't fight or judge, just listen. Watch for the nuggets of wisdom that come your way.
