The Power of Challenges

r By Julie Hall for My Story MattersrThe next “power” is The Power of Challenges.

We all have challenges. Challenges can cause us stress and pain and can bring us to our knees. Challenges can also teach us, humble us and give us the power we didn’t know we could gain.

At My Story Matters challenges are a part of every day. Whether the challenge is to find enough volunteers to staff an event or will there be enough donations to publish a book. Sometimes we are challenged to find someone with whom we can serve. Some challenges can be solved with a phone call to the right person at the right time. Some challenges can only be solved with proper preparation and time and faith. It is our job to find a way to meet the challenge. Not only meet but use the challenge to learn, grow and add richness to our story.

Over the past six months, we have introduced six powers: The Power of Me, The of Power of Love, The Power of Teamwork, The Power to Create, The Power to Learn and The Power of Goals. Every one of these powers and the ideas and concepts that are taught in them has “power”. When we are faced with the challenges of life we can pull from each “power” what is needed. And even if the challenge is difficult, we can persevere and overcome. If the challenge proves too difficult, we will be able to have perspective, learn, be okay with failure and move forward.

During this month use your challenges to move forward. Maybe, along your way, you could grab the hand of someone else and help with their challenges so they can move forward as well. We are all going in the same direction after all.
