No Challenges – No Change

I heard this whilst listening to the radio the other day and with the ‘Invictus Games’ going on at the moment I have my mind filled with the significance of challenges. They can either change us for good or for bad. So the KEY question for today is: how do we respond to a challenge?
My answer to this question is to Look Up, Look Forward & Look Out.
Look Up

  • Having a sense of FAITH and God being in Control diminshes the size of any challenge that we might face.

Looking Forward

  • This helps to address HOPE, it is in the future where opportunities and possibilities lie. Reflecting back can stunt progress.

Look Out

  • It has been scientifically proven that the happy hormone, Endorphins, are now released when we think and do things for others out of LOVE.

If we respond to a challenge like this we will handle any changes that are thrown our way in a positive way.
On the other hand, if we Look Down, Back & In, we may become a (D)angerously (B)leak (I)ndividual.
The choice lies within us.
