We’re all going to face challenges along the way. We’re all going to be confronted with setbacks as we venture forth in the pursuit of our goals and desired outcomes. None of us are immune to the hurdles, we must move beyond them in order to learn what it takes to become the kind of person who can hold their ground in times of uncertainty. And because that’s the case we owe it to ourselves to develop the skills that will assist us to consistently go from strength to strength.
And we needn’t wait for hardship for us to begin building those skills. We can learn from those who have come before us, who have conquered the unknown and willingly share their experiences. Just as athletes train in the preseason, so to should we be consistently training our hearts and minds to navigate that which we are yet to confront and is still to come.
