Challenges and Roadblocks
Can you imagine a lifetime without challenges? Would life seem as productive or meaningful if you didn’t have to work for it? Making your dreams a reality is hard work, full of challenges. For instance, you want a bigger home but you just don’t have the money right now. You want to date but no one is answering on the dating site you signed up and paid for. You are trying to have a baby but it seems harder to get pregnant then you anticipated. It seems there is always a roadblock ahead to make you stop and think. What we may find challenging is just a lesson that gives us opportunities, teaches us to be stronger, knowledgeable, reflect and be successful.
Look at the lessons as a learning experience. There is always an opportunity there. It’s normal for your goals to change. As we grow we change. Take the new information, learn and use it as and opportunity for knowledge. Then reinvent your goal.
Look at roadblocks as a test that makes you stronger. The stronger you become, the easier the challenge becomes. Freedom is part of letting it go. Acknowledge your mistakes and look at what you need to do next. Do not waste energy on blaming others. Just move forward.
Pay attention to how you react to conflicts and challenges. Are you angry, emotional or sad? Is the challenge allowing you to think outside the box for a good solution? Or are you getting caught up in the emotions, feeling fear or shame? Reflect for a moment. Think of another situation in your life that made you feel similar. How did you handle it? What was the turnout? What was your lesson? Most likely you just found your answer.
Just remember that without obstacles to challenge us we would not have any motivation to fuel to our success. The more you learn, the more successful you will be. Be easy on yourself if you make mistakes. The mistakes you make now will bounce you over to a better future.
The bottom line is: do not allow yourself to overthink these lessons and become stressed. We cannot always have control of some situations. Allowing challenges to hinder our spirits prevents us from being happy.
Be a better solution thinker. Observe the matter at hand as a opportunity to learn the strength you have within yourself.
Love you all, Lynn
