Courage Turns Challenges Into Opportunities

Vince Lombardi (football coach) talks about challenges.  We all have challenges in our lives.  What I see as the difference in the outcome of the challenge is how we handle it going in.  You get to make a choice every time something comes up and seems out of your control.  These challenges build courage and character, teaching us about ourselves, others, and the the world around us.  There is always more than one solution to anything you face, always, even if you don’t see it right away.  Be open to possibilities.  Reach deep inside and use courage to embrace any challenge.  There is not a single person who rose to greatness, that did not have challenges.  Some people let a challenge defeat them, some rise to great heights.  What will you do?

It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it.
