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!

Not only were two questions missed on the written test but there was a deficiency in the water skills exam. 
Good news.....
There was an opportunity to retest on the following day. 😀
Bad news.....
The retest was a futile attempt. 😞
After missing the same two questions on the written portion, there was no opportunity or need to retest on the water skills.
I'm sure you can guess what happened next. Yep, there was the internal struggle of do I retake the entire course and test again OR do I cut my losses and move on?
Many of us end up at this crossroad. We get here when we feel like we have given our all to something and did not achieve the result we hoped for. Here are just a few examples: W…
