March Madness - Day 1

When given a challenge, how do you respond?

Option 1: Accept it and work towards your WIN
OR
Option 2: Avoid it and let the idea DEFEAT you

What even is a challenge?

Dictionary.com defines 'challenge' as "a call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc." It also defines 'challenge' as "difficulty in a job or undertaking that is stimulating to one engaged in it."

Before you allow DEFEAT to seep in, consider the advantages of embracing your challenge:

  • Challenges increase your confidence.
  • Challenges can create healthy habits in our lives. 
  • Challenges can allow us to learn more about ourselves.
  • Challenges often force us to grow outside our comfort zone. 
  • Challenges are not always easy, but are always worth the outcome.
  • Challenges really are not against anyone else. YOU and your own challenger.
This is your WINNING season so it's time to step up and challenge yourself. 

Stop waiting for life to happen to you. YOU make life happen. 

Stop making excuses for why things are changing in your life. YOU create the atmosphere for change to enter your space. 

Stop allowing fear to consume you. YOU are more than a conqueror. 

What are you waiting for? Challenge YOURSELF to something new. RIGHT NOW!!


Let me know what you will challenge yourself to. I want to walk with you, encourage you, uplift you, and celebrate with you!

I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
