DO CHALLENGES SEEM TO GET THE BEST OF YOU?
Problems do not have to affect you in a negative way.
You have the power to feel peace through any problem you face. It all depends on how you choose to perceive and then if you choose to react or to respond to the seeming problem.
When reacting to a problem you allow the problem to get the best of you. Chances are you react the same way every time a problem arises.
This gives your power away and drains you of your vital life energy.
When you choose to respond to a problem, you empower yourself and have a chance at boosting your vital life energy.
Responding to a problem involves taking a step back and perceiving it clearly.
From there, choosing to respond according to staying in a positive energy alignment is where you keep your power.
It is through perception and the power of choice that the problem no longer needs to be perceived as a problem, but can now be perceived as an opportunity to grow.
As you develop spiritually you will have many opportunities to grow and expand.
Often times we get upset for the wrong reasons and let things hold us back that should not. If you let things hold you back it pulls you away from our positive alignment.

Most of the time you are most likely not upset for the reason you think you are. You are upset or facing problems because you perceive them to be that way.
You have the power to perceive things in a positive light, even things that seem negative.
When you can ask yourself what the problem is trying to teach you, instantly you create an opportunity to perceive the problem from a new angle and alignment.
This allows you to keep your power where in the past it would have been given to negativity and problematic thoughts.
There is always another way you can perceive something.
An example of this would be the caterpillar thinking the time of going into the cocoon is the end, meanwhile the perception of the butterfly is that it is a new beginning.
Another would be when it comes to water. You can choose to perceive water as refreshing and a thirst quencher.
Or you can choose to perceive the water as something to drown someone with. Two different perceptions, and two different outcomes according to which perception is chosen.
I know this may sound confusing, but it boils down to the fact that you have the power to be, do, or have anything that you want.
This includes facing problems in such a way that they no longer affect you in a negative way.
This is how you turn your problems into potential. You no longer have to live in a problematic mindset.
