My life is often as smooth as silk and I appreciate my journey. However, because some days are less than perfect, I sometimes experience a few bumps along my path.
Expecting life to throw me a few curve balls ensures I stand ready to face whatever challenges come along. When I anticipate an unidentified challenge, I can plan ahead to navigate around its rocky path. Doing these things sharpens my ability to plow through any obstacle that stands in the way of my success.
I know I have enough self-confidence, initiative, and perseverance to find my way through a dark tunnel and emerge into the light.
To persevere, I consider the particular situation that vexes me. I think about how it occurs and whether I have similar experiences under my belt. I take a look at my options and weigh out pros and cons of each. If I believe it is necessary, I seek opinions of those I trust or outside counsel to assist me with the challenge.
Ultimately, I hold the power to meet the challenge head on and push through it with gusto.
Today, I know I can rise above challenges and achieve my goals, regardless of what happens. Through anticipating alternative events, having personal know-how, and keeping the faith, I know I can persevere to live a fulfilling, accomplished life.
