A true motivational hero, the late Norman Vincent Peale, once said, “There is only one group of people who don’t have problems and they are all dead. Problems, or challenges, are a sign of life. So, the more problems you have, the more alive you are.”

If you don’t have any challenges today, maybe you’re on the way out of here and don’t know it yet.

You might take this as a tongue-in-cheek philosophy of life, but it’s closer to the truth than you might think. Everyone has challenges. Some of us have relationship problems, others have financial ones, some face career challenges, others struggle with health issues, some have social issues, while others face difficult business challenges. No one is immune to adversity in life, right?

The key to success, happiness, peace, and balance is accepting the issues, negatives, challenges, struggles (whatever you want to call them) as part of life’s process of becoming, learning, and growing.

Failures, whiners, or victims see problems as life’s way of “picking on them.” Winners in life (or victors), on the other hand, regardless of position, status, age, or circumstances, see challenges as catalysts for becoming better, stronger, wiser, and more aware of the realities of their lives.

Challenges are not positive or negative: they just are. They are simple happenings. It isn’t what’s happening in your life that matters — it’s how you choose to see challenges and what you do with them.  Whether these challenges are perceived as negative or positive is entirely up to you and your outlook.

Learn to see the negatives as loving teachers in your life that help clear your vision and show you where you may need an attitude adjustment, improved thinking, or better skills.

Why not make a list of all of your challenges and ask yourself the following questions:  

  • Is there anything I can do about this now or later? 
  • Is it going to last forever?
  • What would my hero, mentor, or someone I respect do about this?
  • Is this a recurring situation in my life? Why?

These should get you started. Now, add some of your own.
