Why do many people view challenges as a negative?

“Man, I just do not know how I am going to handle all of these people in our house at Thanksgiving!!!”

You are getting to spend an awesome time with your family and friends!!! That is a POSITIVE in my family!

“Man, I just don’t know what to do with this project. I have never really done something like this before.”

You are getting to learn and grow!!! How awesome to be able to do something new and challenging!

“Man, I just do not know how to get control of our finances. We have never been able to control them well.”

You are gaining control of the number one cause of marital strife! How awesome to be able to work with your spouse and learn and grow together!!!

Enjoy challenges!!! They are your opportunity to learn and grow. Life without variety and a hint of mystery grows bland VERY quickly.

    That is so inspirational! For someone to just reiterate how we should feel sometimes is so awesome! When life gets you down, it is so cool to have someone tell you that they believe in you and give some good advice is always welcome in my life. Thank you so much, Joe!
