How To Overcome Any Challenge In Life

Here are general rules to help you win every challenge and grip them by the root.

1). Obstacles are designed to be pounded, hurdles to leap over, and the stumbling blocks are there to serve as stepping stones to greater achievements. You must come to terms with this basic assertion.

2). All challenges are inside. The solution to every problem is within, and so is the cause. You should, therefore, always look within, long before you look without. Every victory always demands that you work hard on yourself before the dawn triumph.

3). You must study, analyze and understand the true nature of the challenge; what it demands. You should then write down your findings. This action alone quickly puts you in charge. It puts you in action, and the challenge, in inaction. It dilutes the venom in the challenge and concentrates the drive in you.

4). You must never attempt to run away from the challenge, as, like a wild dog, it would run straight after you and approach you with vicious intentions. You are born a champion. Only cowards run away from challenges.

5). You must never curse the challenge, as every challenge, upon victory, hands you several benefits of equivalent magnitude. Challenges come to strengthen. This you must acknowledge. Great storms make oaks take deeper roots.

6). You must never blame anyone, including your peers, teachers, parents, school, government, or God, for the challenge. Complaining and blaming is not the method of winners.

7). You must take total responsibility for every challenge and for the outcome of every contest you pursue in life. You must arrive with conviction and passion. Only as you stand on your feet can you grow in stature.

8). You must never cry, blame yourself, pity yourself or say "why me?" as you confront the challenge, for this will serve to suspend the thinking process necessary to overcome the challenge.

9). Challenges are known to fear the bold person. Courage must be your weapon of attack. You must therefore bring optimism and audacity to bear on the challenge.

10). You should contact the library or bookshop to get practical books written by people who have had similar challenges, to learn how they won. You need to read such books and profit from their recent wisdom, and then win over your challenge.

11). You need to find a fellow human being who now faces challenges similar to yours; work hard with the person with empathy and help them to overcome the challenge. And just by a miracle, your challenge would shrink, dissolve and disappear. Never underestimate the power of God.

12). You need to find a mentor, an experienced and trusted friend, and an adviser. Table the substance of challenge you're facing before them, and humbly request guidance. Your teachers/lecturers and parents will qualify for this role. A counselor can also help. Even though well-meaning and loving, your friends and classmates cannot counsel you with their meager experience.

If you are already a parent or out of school, an expert in the very field that brings forth the challenge would constitute a credible mentor. Friends, in-laws, and neighbors, except those vastly experienced, are unfit for a mentor.

13). When it rains, it pours: By this, you shall realize that challenges, like blessings, often arrive in multiples; they match with siblings. You must therefore take heart and never give up, even in the face of the toughest tribulation. You must appreciate that just as the night is darkest shortly before dawn, difficulties often attain their hardest bite at the brink of their decline, only needing a little extra persistence from you to unveil the multiple blessings they always hide.
This blessing shall ultimately become yours as a fair reward for your faith and perseverance. You shall remember that there is always a solution, no matter the magnitude of the problem. You must, therefore, always persist until you achieve.

14). You shall pray to God for victory over the challenge. You must have absolute faith in God.  You have to present the nature of your desire, the contest before you, and the challenges standing in your way before the Almighty God. God in His infinite wisdom shall answer in any of the three main ways: (a) No, (b) Yes, or (c) Wait

God rarely says 'No.' 

He does this only when victory over your challenge when the actualization of your desire will fetch unforeseen harm to you and others.

You will therefore do well to trust God and surrender to His will at all times. This will grant you incalculable peace of mind and serenity.

God always says 'Yes.'

You should know that only a worthless blessing is ever gotten for free. For a gratifying achievement, God will always demand that you qualify for the merit. Such blessings shall always come wrapped in a blanket of challenges.

A big blanket must necessarily contain a big blessing. You have to go to work and remove the veil to earn the mighty blessing it contains. This is the way of all champions in history. You are born to win. You must merit every favor.

You also have to give praise and worship to God at all times as you overcome every challenge. You must not only be grateful for what you achieve but also for what you escape.

God may also say 'wait.' 

You will therefore profit from patience and perseverance at all times. You must know, like the farmers, that you cannot sow and reap on the same day.
