To have the courage to face challenges is to overcome weaknesses.

Message for the day

Expression: The one who has the courage to face challenges surely puts in effort to find a solution for them. He is not caught up with these challenges but understands that they are an expression of his own weakness. To wish for the challenge to finish on its own without working on it, or to make effort to move away from the situation is escapism, which doesn't lead to success.

Experience: When I am prepared for all the challenges that come my way I am able to finish my own weaknesses. I have the courage to understand that the challenge is not from the situation itself but is because of my internal weakness. So I am able to be stable and strong even in the most difficult situations.

Becoming Responsible For My Destiny 

These are examples of some of the inner questions that emerge in our minds from time to time:

‘Why is she rich and successful and I am not?’ ‘Why did he behave in that way with me; I've always behaved well with him.’ ‘Why does that one have easy success in life and the other, however hard he tries, fails at every step?’ ‘Why is he nice natured but is born blind and the other ill natured but has no health problems at all?’ ‘Why does she suffer so much?’ ‘She is so sweet, but yet everyone disrespects her.’ ‘Why did that child die at such a young age? She was so innocent.’ ‘Why did I get married to such a person?’ ‘Why am I here?’ ‘How is that student in my class so intelligent?’

There are lot more questions like these that trouble us. In the case of sorrows, it is seen more than the sorrow, it is the question - why this sorrow exists in my life that troubles us. Why? What? How? When? Even so, they all have only one answer: ‘karma’.

I don't need to go into minute details of each situation. If I see that nothing can happen without having had a justified cause in my past or in that of others, life becomes much easier to face, with responsibility and the power of courage.
