Every Challenge is an Opportunity

We all have challenges in life, and sometimes, life gets on top of us. I defy anyone alive to tell me they don’t have doubts and don’t get down occasionally. This is true for everyone alive and breathing.
Like many of you, I, too, face moments of self-doubt. It can be disheartening when potential clients don’t respond or reject my business. One rejection is manageable, but a series can momentarily shake my confidence.
I am human and want to help as many people as possible, but to do this, I need to be in front of them. Rejection is part of life; we accept and deal with it or collapse under our difficulties and challenges.
Trust is the key.
One critical tool I use to bounce back in tough times is Trust. Trust is a choice; I trust God, myself, and my business. This trust helps me maintain my mental resilience and keep moving forward.
I reflect on the hundreds of testimonials from delighted customers and reinforce that the rejections aren’t personal; my masterclasses don’t suit specific clients, which is okay.
In many cases, one significant factor in a client rejecting me is that they haven’t seen me deliver a session personally. I know that when people see a session, their opinions change entirely. However, this is not possible in many cases, and I am being judged based on written information or a video call.
What I bring is unique and personal. I am living proof that the techniques I teach have changed my life and the lives of countless others.
There is a positive in every negative.
You only grow in character and comfort zone when you face challenges. When things are going well, you enjoy those times but don’t grow. This is a time of enjoyment and rest. Growth comes in the guise of pain, frustration, fear, rejection, impossible odds, long hours, and stress, to name a few.
Once I discovered this truth, my mindset changed completely. It made me realise that as I go through pain, I grow. I now embrace failure and challenges, knowing I grow as I experience them. When I look back, I see the journey I have been on, which has taken me to another level.
I have learned to embrace challenges, and I see these as times of personal growth. Like the pain you endure in the gym, challenges are the catalysts for personal development. You don’t see any results without pain and some suffering, but within a period, you see the results of hard work and pain.
Trust is not just a key; it’s a lifeline for overcoming tough times. We all go through tough times, no matter who we are. How we respond and react to these times determines how well we come through them. Trust yourself and your abilities, and the process will guide you.
I found this article in Word for Today, demonstrating how a great attitude can yield outstanding results.
 It’s how you respond.

“Demosthenes, who was reputed to be the greatest orator in ancient Greece, had a severe speech impediment. Legend has it that he overcame it by reciting verses with pebbles in his mouth and speaking above the roar of the waves at the seashore.
As a prisoner in the Wartburg castle, Martin Luther used his time by translating the New Testament into German.
Beethoven wrote his greatest symphonic masterpieces after losing his hearing.
John Bunyan wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress when he was in prison.
Daniel Defoe also wrote in prison, creating Robinson Crusoe. 
Many consider Abraham Lincoln the best United States president, but he probably would not have become known as a great leader if he had not led the country through the Civil War.
Often, difficult situations seem to involve producing great leaders and thinkers. But that is only the case when their attitudes are right.
When a problem comes in contact with someone with the right attitude, the result is often excellent.
Great diplomats, businesspeople, scientists, educators, pastors, and others emerge from great turmoil.
Every challenge is an opportunity, and every opportunity has a challenge. However, the attitude with which you approach your problem largely determines the outcome. So, remember, a positive attitude can turn even the most difficult challenges into stepping stones towards success.
Words of wisdom
What great words of wisdom! This is the key to living a happier, more productive life. We feel what we think, so if we are more optimistic, we will feel better and have more energy. As a result, we will be more productive and feel better, which will give us more energy and result in a positive upward spiral.
Thoughts for the week. 

  1. How do you respond when things go wrong?
  2. Do you see it as entirely negative?
  3. As you go through challenges this week, trust yourself to come through.
  4. Be aware that you are growing as you go through the challenges, and you will look back on this time in the future and see the positives. 

Well, that’s it for this week. Have a wonderful weekend and keep believing.
Warm regards
