“Physical muscles build up by facing the challenge weight. Mental muscles too grow stronger as we challenge them. According to Barbara Fredrickson, a leading positive psychology researcher, “in life there are situations where you have to perform in areas where you are weak, and it is those situations that may bring the most pride and the most lasting sense of confidence, achievement, and strength as well.” ~ Source
NOTE: Think back to your greatest successes, those that brought you the deepest satisfaction. More likely than not, you overcame significant challenges on your road to success. You faced difficulties and didn’t shy away. The result was success and an inner feeling that you did something special. You felt good about yourself. Don’t fear challenging situations. You knock them down and keep on going. Bring it on is your motto. You are confident.
