"Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent of how I react to it." ~Charles Swindoll

Recently, a friend who was having some health challenges shared that he was in the doctor's office feeling blue. He was sitting in the waiting room when a young person walked by with an artificial leg. Soon after, a younger mother walking by with a very sick infant. Suddenly, his ailments seemed minor.

We all have days when challenges seem overwhelming. No one is making light of the issues we often face. However, the reality is that how I react to them will change the outcome. We can improve or worsen the results based on our attitude and the lens in which we view the circumstances.

If I view the challenges as opportunities to learn, to pull together with my team, and to stretch in new ways, the obstacles become easier to overcome. If I stay focused on feelings of frustration, the circumstances will surely become more daunting.

Personal Challenge:

-How will you view your challenges?

-How will you encourage others to rise above their frustrations?
