You and I are capable of achieving certain things in life. I have met many talented people in life, people who could do many more things than I can do, but I never met anyone who can do everything. I do believe the level of success we are capable of reaching is linked to the way we handle the hurdles life throws our way. Problems in life are not always a bad thing. Life’s issues can be something to be thankful for because God can use them to strengthen you. Winston Churchill said, “Difficulties mastered are opportunities won,” and I believe that is true. (2 Corinthians 4:8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;) We have to remind our selves….”greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world.” If you allow difficulties and challenges to frustrate, intimidate, or discourage you, you will never overcome them. But if you face them head-on and press through the adversities you encounter, refusing to give up in the midst of them and move forward with a heart of gratitude, you will develop the skills and determination needed to be everything you were created to be and experience everything God intends for you.
