I have noticed a common theme among members of my network as well as my clients in the last couple of weeks.  They are facing adversity and challenges all around them and they are finding it difficult to remain positive in their lives and in their businesses.  Sound familiar?

Take a moment each day to reflect and remember, we only grow when we are going through trial and tribulation. It is this growth that allows us to become a stronger woman, a better mom, a savvy business owner.  When we embrace the challenges and have gratitude for the learning opportunity presented to us, then we are able to teach others what we learned, there by fulfilling our potential and our purpose.

Whether the challenge is in your personal life or your professional life,  it is still an opportunity for you to become stronger and wiser in both areas.  Here is a helpful tip; find yourself aJournal and everyday jot down 5-10 things that you are grateful for, including what you are learning from the challenges in your life.  It is hard to be negative when we are being grateful.
