During your toughest times and greatest challenges you discover more about your essence and potential. It is during these times you can find your true connection with the Higher Power.
Your challenges and life lessons give you an opportunity to see the importance of following proper principles. It is during these times when you discover their true value.
Such experiences empower you to look deep within yourself and push you beyond your comfort zones. Breakthroughs take you to another level. Miracles do happen. You just need to acknowledge them. What seems impossible is impossible only because of your current perspective. Just beyond that perspective is the chance to discover a higher level. What challenges you, improves you. Whatever challenges you to the extreme can also lead you to a breakthrough.
Challenges do not build character, they reveal character! You must go beyond your preferences and blind spots to see clearly what is. Your ego is not usually happy to support this. As difficult and burdensome as they may be, obstacles do not hold you back. Your own unwillingness and resistance to move forward is what holds you back. You have the strength to decide what to focus your energy and resources on. You can be strong in any way you choose to be strong.
This moment presents an opportunity, no matter what challenges appear. Focus on what you can do, with what you have, where you are.
“Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, come apparent failure and discouragement.”

Thoughts are things. It is how you perceive life that creates your reality.
You have the freedom of choice and with it you color your world. Do you realize your choices are based on your perceptions.
Is the glass half full or half empty? Is the universe for you or against you? Are your perceptions accurate or are they biased because of your preferences?
Being present greatly affects your perspective. Whatever you think is true for you. It requires the same amount of energy to be positive as it does to be negative.
By using your discernment and wisdom, you are able to see the truth in the moment. This allows you to make the best possible choices and create whatever you want.
There is a well known story about three men who spent their lives quarrying rocks. When asked what they were doing, one replied, “Breaking rocks.” The second said, “Earning a living.” The third said, “Our team is building a cathedral.”
Which of the three had the most job satisfaction?
“If you think you can, or if you think you can’t, either way, you’re right.”
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
“Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

From Roy Eugene Davis:
The thoughts you habitually think, your mental attitudes and emotional states, reactions to events, personal relationships and actions are chosen by you. How you think and behave determines your existing circumstances and those you will experience in the near and distant future. If you want any aspect of your life to be improved, you have only to exercise your freedom of choice and decisively act in accord with your choices.
Choose to be emotionally mature. Assume responsibility for your thoughts, actions and circumstances. Refuse to allow mental confusion, emotional unrest or psychological conflicts to dominate your awareness. Do not let debilitating habits dissipate your vital forces, weaken your health, diminish your financial (or other) resources, mar worthwhile relationships or interfere with the efficient accomplishments of your meaningful purposes.
Be optimistic, cheerful and calmly energetic. Optimistic people are always healthier, happier, more successful and live longer than people who are pessimistic. Cultivate only wholesome, life-enhancing thoughts, feelings, behaviors and relationships. Be aware of your true nature in relationship to the Infinite. Nurture awareness of the presence of God within and around you. Assume and express the characteristics and qualities you want to have.
“Remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you. Reflect that someday you will have to leave this world, so make the acquaintance of God now. It is only because of delusion that you perceive yourself as a physical body. Meditate unceasingly to realize your real, divine nature.”
