It’s Challenging To Get What You Want

It’s challenging to get what you want.

 
You’re trying to do something you’ve never done before. Of course, that’s challenging!

When you were a child learning to walk it wasn’t easy. It was a challenge.

The goals you have now, the dreams you want to realize…they are challenges.

And that’s perfect.

A challenge by definition is simply “a task or situation that tests someone’s abilities.”

That’s all it is.

It’s nothing bad. It’s nothing to obsess and fret and worry over.

Challenges are experiences.
 

When you’re working toward a goal that you’ve never achieved before it IS going to test your abilities. You’re going to have to grow, to stretch, to learn in order to achieve it.

 
That’s not a bad thing.

It’s your thoughts about challenges that make them problems.

The challenge is just a task, a task you’ve yet to succeed at, but still just a task. It’s not some big mountain that you’re incapable of scaling.

Unless you think of it that way.
 

Think of it as a big immovable mountain and it will be.
Think of it as an opportunity to grow and it will be.

 
Which thought feels better?

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
