We experience all kinds of adversity in life. There are personal experiences – such as illness, loss of a loved one, abuse, bullying, job loss, financial instability and so on – that can test our limits mentally and emotionally.

One of the most important things to remember when facing a challenge is that you can handle it. No matter how difficult things seem, it is essential to believe in yourself and your ability to overcome the obstacle.

Our highest self wants us to learn and grow, and life’s most effective tool toward growth is certainly our experiences. It is with this sense of responsibility and awareness that you can begin your journey into a higher state of consciousness where challenges are no longer challenges, but opportunities to get a glimpse of your highest potential.

Our challenges are an opportunity for us to rise, so take your challenges and use them to your advantage.

First, putting a challenge off does not make it go away, it is quite the opposite. It just gets bigger. If you are facing a challenge right now, the most important thing you can do is face what is in front of you head on.

Acknowledge it, face it, and take action.

Second, you can ask yourself questions that help you better understand the problem and how it affects you. Most of the time, all we need is 1. to know that we are not alone 2. to see the possibilities in order to go through it.

Remember – you are never alone, only if you want to. There is power when asking for help.

Some challenges seem enormous and harsh, but if you remain open and present – focusing on one step at a time – no challenge is too big to meet with power and grace.

I believe in you!
