Life-changing Beliefs

I always find it a blessing to listen to successful people who willingly share their knowledge and share the philosophies that helped them achieve success. A few months ago, I was very fortunate to have learned a couple of philosophies from one of the successful leaders in our business that is truly helpful to keep in mind especially in these trying times. I would like to share these with you in hope that these words-which our mentor lovingly calls “Life-changing beliefs”- will help you remain positive and hopeful at all times.

Problems are GIFTS.  In reality, we don’t see problems in a positive way because they are always viewed negatively. Problems are problems. They are the cause of our sorrow, anxiety and worry. But we must face the fact that they are an inevitable part of our daily existence. So what must we do? Change our attitude towards our problems. Think of the trials and challenges that we face as a way to strengthen our character, deepen our faith and as a way for us to gain more courage. After all, a storm doesn’t last forever – the sun will always shine.

There are no problems, only CHALLENGES.  A challenge is defined as “a difficulty which stimulates interest or effort.” Problems are difficult, but when viewed as a challenge, we are sure to overcome them. Why is that? We simply like the feeling of being challenged and proving the one who challenged us wrong. When we are challenged, we take it with pride and say something like, “Bring it on!” If some of the people we know believe that we’re a failure and likely to fail, well, are we going to let them win and prove that they’re right? Of course not!  Would we let a few disappointments overpower us and stop us from where we want to go and what we want to achieve?  Definitely not.  So that’s the beauty of a challenge. It gives us all the reasons to succeed and takes away all the excuses and the reasons to fail. We can do that, too, with all of our problems – we can succeed and triumph over them.

When we are faced with challenges, tell yourself “It’s Great!.”  Why is it great to have challenges? Well, it simply makes us a better person. We know that we have a thing or two to learn from all of the challenges that come our way. We may even be an inspiration to other people because of what we’ve learned from our difficulties. So, yes, it is great to be faced with challenges. Never forget that. :)

 “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.
Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills.
Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.” – Jim Rohn
