In every challenge look for a valuable lesson
Whenever you have goal that is unachieved, a difficulty that is unresolved or a problem that is blocking you from where you want to go…sit down with a pen and paper and make a list of everything you could possibly do to resolve the situation
The more you think on paper the more you take control of your conscious mind.
