Challenge - The future is not in the hands of fate but in ours.

Smiling is a wonderful way to get a boost of happiness. 

The next time life presents you with a challenging situation, take a deep breath and smile.

Life is a gift, accept it, enjoy it, and be happy with it. Life is a challenge, but challenges can always be overcome
·       The brain needs to be regularly challenged in order to attain its uttermost performance.
·       People do not only talk about successes, they talk about people who overcame their challenges or disabilities. Others are inspired when you are able to overcome your challenges. 
·       Your character is formed by the challenges you face and overcome.
·       Those who recognize problems as a human condition and don't measure happiness by an absence of problems are the most intelligent kind of humans we know; also, the most rare.
·       Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character. Author Unknown, Be Thankful 
·       Gradually I learned to cease looking upon challenges as difficulties and began to see tense situations as opportunities to put my growing love to use.
·       Understand that it is ok to be scared or uncertain, however right beyond those barriers ultimately lies your dreams.
·       A life filled with vicissitudes, uncertainty and hard lessons provides us with skills to better approach new challenges that come along.
·       Focused will is incredible. If you have a dream and you don't give up no matter what obstacles come up, then life's problems will fall away and you will get what you want. It happens. It works.
·       Expect obstacles and face them head on. They are going to come up so the way you handle them is what makes all the difference.
·       When faced with a challenge, look for a way, not a way out.
·       Life requires overcoming challenges and obstacles of many types. Battling our struggles and fears determines who we are.
·       Challenges are an opportunity to test you and rise to the next level. 
·       A comfort zone is the most dangerous area anyone can stay in. It is a place of no growth and no challenges.
·       To accept the challenge of the unknown, in spite of all fears, is courage. The fears are there, but if you go on accepting the challenge again and again, slowly those fears disappear.
·       There isn't a person on this planet that hasn't experienced a few bumps along the way to achieving the level of success that they desire.
·       Real difficulties can be overcome; it is the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.
·       More important, our lack of patience creates difficulties because the more complex of life's challenges - illness, relationship conflicts, job crises, parenting issues, to name a few - require that we practice patience in order not merely to cope, but to grow in love and wisdom.
·       Courage comes while we are facing challenges and because we are facing challenges! Courage takes our hand as we step up.
·       What the life of Nelson Mandela teaches us is that life is full of challenges, hardships and misfortunes and we must forever strengthen our resolve to forge ahead and achieve our dreams in spite of the road blocks erected on our paths.

Optimists enrich the present, enhance the future, challenge the improbable and attain the impossible.

Remember all the challenges that you have overcome in the past and take pride in your success. You are a fighter and you know it. This will give you more faith that you can handle whatever is yet to come.
