In life we are constantly challenged. Challenges are natural to our constant growth. Every challenge that is presented to us in life is usually an awakening that is soon to happen in result of it.
Challenges are what help us grow by awakening us to new parts of our inner self……
I ran across a few challenges in the last few weeks.
I noticed that whenever we are presented with a challenge a few things happen:
The first level of dealing with is comes from fear. We get a rush of fear about what will happen if I screw this up or can’t overcome it?
Second because of fear our minds create a story. Our minds are programmed to assess the current information we see in front of us and then create some sort of story about what we think is occurring. That story is actually taking the fears you feel and amplifying them.
This results in a panic and a loss of control of the situation.
Thus, what I found is the best way to tackle on such challenges is a few steps:
Controlling our mindset usually our instincts of fear and control kick in because we as beings always want to control the situation. However, when we understand the way life works, the openings that happen to guide us in life we will realize that sometimes being free and following the flow of life and seeing where it guides us brings much relief. Besides the outcome whether we try to control the situation of flow with it is usually the same.
Then comes the part about truly being in touch with ourselves and being who we are. Tackle that situation as you are you do not have to change but embrace your true purpose and see what that brings.
Lastly, think of challenges as new opportunities never close a door on an opportunity in life based on fear. You will live the rest of life wondering "WHAT IF" and would I be in a different place had I pursued it? When you are not clear, pursue it focusing on that current moment and answers will come later when it is time!
