Enough with excuses! Enough with holding back and feeling small! Enough with waiting until you’re ready – if you knew what you needed to be ready, you wouldn’t be waiting anymore! Embrace the challenge ahead and you’ll be amazed and what you can do!
Okay, so easier said that done, right?
Well here’s my advice on how to take charge and move beyond feeling stuck in fear and stuck in a “but what if…” mentality.
Acknowledge the Challenge
Challenge, test, lesson – whatever word you want to use – it’s all happening for you, not to you – and you have to acknowledge the challenge! The first step to any sort of change is realizing the issue and admitting that somethings can’t stay the same for different results to be achieved.
Do (or Get Through) the Challenge
Along with just doing it, sometimes you just need to do (or get through) the tough stuff because there’s a lesson to be learned. If you don’t learn it now, you’ll be put through this test again and again and again until you finally acknowledge the lesson.
You don’t need to declare to the world that you’ve learned the lesson – but as soon as you realize what the lesson is, and you open yourself up to learning from it and embracing the change that needs to come from it – it is going to look different the next time it crosses your path! In fact, it is going to look so different that eventually it’ll seem like it’s not there anymore.
In this case, it’s important to realize: the test didn’t change – you did.
Let Love Lead
If you have trouble getting through a challenge or lesson in life, remember that decisions can be made out of love or fear. Love yourself enough to work through what you’re facing or find the help you need to do it and soon you will get to a place of greater growth, peace, acceptance, and joy.
All In All
Before challenges, tests, and lessons can be completed or learned, we must embrace and work through them. In doing so, we grow out of them and find that they don’t look as difficult as they once did. Unless we stay aware and open to the situations and changes we come across and make as individuals, it can be easy to miss these moments of growth.
