Are you feeling tested?

Mar 20  – Are you feeling tested? Is everything you are attempting to accomplish being met with a challenge lately? Are you feeling that you are being tested in some way? Do you feel that you shouldn't have to prove anything at this stage of your life, your career, or in your business?  Are you so set in your way of doing things, that you are not being fully open to what may be a valuable insight you need?

When we experience one challenge at a time, it seems more palatable and, therefore, we deal with it and move on. But, when several challenges occur all at once, we too often get caught up in their accumulation as a whole versus viewing them as individual and manageable. Seeing what they might be trying to tell us rather than detesting them for hindering us in some way is key to turning challenges into opportunities in disguise. Once we are willing to explore them for insight, we shift to a position of strength and clarity related to next best steps. 


Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to insights you may be overlooking. List each challenge you have encountered that has ruffled or frustrated you. Next to each challenge list some options for helping you cope with and manage the situation, while disregarding the others for a moment. Now look at your challenges as a whole and identify if any of them have a connection in some kind of way.  Is there a pattern or trend that may bring you to an aha you may not have realized? Could these connections being made be impacting you in ways you had not considered?  Is a pattern beginning to form that needs to be addressed or refocused? By gaining this insight and understanding, you will be in a better state of mind that can enable you to take actions to overcome each and every challenge constructively. Being tested is a gift in disguise. Unlock your potential. Embrace every challenge with an open, optimistic mind.
