Challenges come so we can grow
and be prepared for things
we are not equipped to handle now.

When we face our challenges with faith,
prepared to learn, willing to make changes,
and if necessary, to let go,
we are demanding our power
be turned on.

I cannot wait for the day when a challenge comes along and it EXCITES me, rather than gives me anxiety:)

So whenever there is a challenge, never reject it... welcome it. Challenge is life and life-giving. So whenever there is a challenge, immediately take the opportunity and thank God that again the unknown is before you. Again you are afraid, good. Again the security is no more there, good. Again you move in the insecure. Again the adventure starts and you don't know where you are going you don't know where you will reach, or whether you will ever reach.
But take the challenge, focus on the challenge; then fear is just the shadow of the challenge. Never pay much attention to shadows because if you do, shadows tend to become realities. Always pay attention to the reality. When you are focused on reality you can see what is a shadow and what is real. The unreal has no more influence on you.
