Overcoming Challenges

When it comes to everyday life, not every day will be a good day, and not every day will be a bad day. Challenges can come in any situation, and how you work through the challenge helps you to overcome and win. Some steps you can take to overcome a challenge:

  1. Plan: Even when you don’t know the next step to take, you can still plan. Who might have the answers that you need? Or who may have overcome a challenge like yours in the past? Who has the resources to help you?
  2. Know that you are not alone: That might sound like a throwaway phrase but facing a challenge alone can lead to being overwhelmed. Who is in your corner, who wants the best for you even if it is hard and will walk with you through the challenge?
  3. Ask for help: This step might sound obvious, but for some people asking for help can be hard. But, we all need help, and it is good to ask someone to help you with a challenge. Just make sure they want what is best and not just what is easy.
  4. Focus on the good, not only the struggle: What can come out of your challenge that is good, that is right? It may take walking a hard path for a bit to come out the other side, but there is a way through. You will not be in this challenge forever.
