Whenever I feel like I lack the strength to tackle obstacles, I remind myself of my power. Positive self-talk pushes me to take on tough situations that have an uncertain outcome. When I tell myself that I have what it takes to figure it out, I get a jolt of confidence and dive right in. I stay afloat because I know I am able to.

Figuring things out along the way shows me what I am made of. I am pleasantly surprised by my abilities when I push past my comfort zone. My mind is a powerful tool. It takes me to places that surprise me. I discover my true ability when I say yes to the unknown and embrace the outcome with an open mind.

Being able to figure things out is a nod to my competitive spirit. Physical challenges are a hindrance at times, but I refuse to be out even when I am down. There is a fighting spirit in me that ensures that giving up is a last resort. My limitations are only as impactful as I allow them to be.

There is always an alternative to achieving a goal when the first option is unavailable. I rely on my creativity to find ways to get it done. Today, there is power inside me that is waiting to be unleashed. I treasure opportunities that challenge what I know about myself. They give me a chance to learn even more about the unearthed strength and ability that lie dormant.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Which newly discovered strength am I most proud of?
  2. How easy is it for me to find alternatives to unfamiliar challenges?
  3. When is it time to rely on the support of others?
