The Challenge-Be Thankful For That Person


You know sometimes when you are butting heads with someone who is close in your life, and they won’t get off your back? Every so often there’s a bit of friction and discomfort in the mix?  If that person has the right intentions, they may be calling you to a higher standard, which you are capable of achieving.  If that person challenges you to excellence, he/she cares enough to push you through the change, get you to dance differently so to speak, step up your game, get a little hungry and jump the hump.  If there is a person in your life who keeps you hoping and keeps you challenged – you are fortunate!


The wise one who challenges you will walk the talk, live the message and teach you the game.  If that person has been there, done that, and they care enough to talk to you and guide you about THE CLIMB, all the while letting you fall, so you can get back up a little stronger, a little smarter with a little more confidence then by all means clean out those ear drums, open up and listen.


He or she who challenges you to get better may be the person to get you on your path to follow your true North Star!  Believe me, the process could take time, or it could go as fast as when a songwriter/singer writes a top selling song in twenty minutes. Time is not the point, the challenge of getting you to move upward is the opportunity.  If that person who challenges you exists in your life- say thank you and get busy on your journey north!
