Possible is a word for ground you are just about to break!

At one time or another, we are all going to face challenges in our lives. These will be moments when we need to gather courage that we may doubt we have, fight feelings that are uncomfortable and act in ways that we previously thought were too difficult.

It is extremely important that we face challenges, however, instead of running away from them, for these are the opportunities for us to grow in ways both expected, and also in ways we never thought possible. Instead of seeing challenges as frightening, we need to get excited about them! Imagine how you will feel when you smash through this new ground! Victorious and triumphant! Visualise yourself smiling as you got through what you didn't think was possible. Do NOT concentrate on any painful feelings of pushing through this new area. What you focus on truly does grow.

We grow not only in skills we were too afraid to apply before, as well as psychologically overcome barriers of fear. Thus, we grow in courage and confidence. Our self-esteem blossoms as we realise our true potential. We truly are not the same people we were as before we faced and conquered the challenge.

The opposite of facing a challenge is to sit comfortably in the mud of stagnation. We may still do well, but we are not headed toward the self-actualisation, the need that Maslow identified, that describes the desire we all have planted within us to reach our full potentials and be everything we can be. If we stagnate, our self-esteem, self-confidence and self-respect suffer. You are worth more than that! You are worth giving yourself the rewards of facing a challenge.

Once we have faced a challenge, we smash through the gates of fear, and we know not only we can surmount the same challenge again, but also forge through new territories.

So, let us take up the gauntlet and look forward to the exciting new possibilities of growth waiting for us. Thereís everything to gain, and nothing to lose.
