When the challenges are great, so are the possibilities for making real progress. Accept that those challenges exist, and yet do not be resigned to them.
Be clear and honest about where you are. Then begin moving boldly toward where you wish to go. Look realistically at the difficulties you face. In every single one of them, there is opportunity.
No one is better positioned than you to make the most of those unique and meaningful opportunities. For you know exactly where you are, where you intend to be, and what you have to work with. The road to real accomplishment leads directly through the challenges. Right now, you have what it takes to begin moving forward on that road.
You know what must be done, and more importantly, you know why you must do it. Step confidently into the challenges, and keep going until you reach the success that is on the other side. — Ralph Marsto
