The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
You will be challenged…
When you decide to step up your game.
When you decide to make a change.
When you commit to something or someone.
When you can no longer stay in the same place anymore.
When you decide to ask for help.
When you decide that you want to be better.
When you decide to say “good bye”.
When you say “yes!”
When you say “no!”
Challenge is what we signed up for.
Challenge creates discomfort. Stop resisting it. Stop fighting.
Face challenge head on and give it a big sloppy, wet kiss on the mouth.
Welcome challenge. Welcome the opportunity for growth.
Welcome the discomfort.
Stop being wimpy.
Put on your big girl pants.
Stop looking for someone to save you.
Enlist the help of your best buds.
Surround yourself with people who will go to bat for you and stand by your side.
Be brave enough to face the challenge with an open heart and strong backbone.
You are strong.
Make peace with the fact that discomfort is part of your expansion and transformation.
Make peace with the fact that you are going to piss people off.
Make peace with the fact that the challenges you call forward are preparing you for the glory, the miracles, the magic ahead.
Get comfy with the discomfort.
You will be challenged. Get used to it.
