The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience,
but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Embrace each challenge as potential to reach higher ground. Without challenge you could not revel in glorious victories, or understand the heartache of defeat.

People seek a challenge just as fire seeks to flame. Chinese proverb

Your challenges only exist through the intention they need to present themselves. Today, as you run from your meeting to get to class on time, As you haul 5 bags of groceries up the stairs, take the test or run the race… As you travel to a place you’ve never seen, wait patiently for the DM, and when you look into your opponent’s eyes taking a step closer…

Approach with your strength, courage and optimistic faith.
Know that you can. Do your best.
This world and has been created for you.Take it. Do it.Own It.

You are enough.

When we walk to the edge of all the light you have
and take the step into the darkness of the unknown,
you must believe that one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid for us to stand upon,
or we will be taught to fly. Patrick Overton, Faith


Philosophy In Action

Challenge yourself to a detox. Maybe 3 days, or even a week. Make the commitment and then, refrain from drinking alcohol, caffeine, and eating foods with white flour and sugar. These toxins tempt the stability and vitality of your body. Keep a journal and write down the feelings you experience during the detox. Keep the journal for future reference. Next time, someone or something EXTERNAL challenges your stability, look back at your journal and compare the feelings you've experienced during both times of contest and content.
