Accept and Embrace the Challenges You Face

"To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way." - Mike Gafka

Accept and embrace the challenges you face

Resistance is futile, I swear

For even in complaining, avoiding or placating, 

Your problems will still be there.

Accept and embrace the challenges you face

The hardest hurdles you'll find

Aren't the ones to be found by looking around

But the obstacles plaguing your mind.

Accept and embrace the challenges you face

You are big enough to handle it all

It is thinking that is stinking, your life that is shrinking

While you contentedly play small.

Accept and embrace the challenges you face

Acceptance is foremost the key

Releasing you from hurry and worry

Into what is and not what could be.

Accept and embrace the challenges you face

Embrace means loving the now

You choose joy in this moment leaning into unknown and

You will, in fact, discover your how.  

Accept and embrace the challenges you face

Be unafraid of what you don't know

Life is a journey, a process, a learning

A chance to thrive and to grow.
