Can anyone really calm the Storm? It's not even worth trying, but surely one can calm oneself. And the Storm will pass. The same applies to various challenging and life-changing phases that one encounters unexpectedly. The reality is that nothing is forever, except those "Forever" postage stamps. Everything shall pass away, the good, the bad and the ugly too. All one can do is to stay calm and ride the storm, with complete and strong faith in God. It's true that sometimes, God brings the greatest rains with a storm; and likewise, God also brings the greatest blessings to you, with your difficulty.
Carpe diem: i.e. seize each day, make the most of today in order to enjoy your life and yourself eventually. Because, everyday is a privilege given to you by God to utilize and maximize. Thus, never waste any day. Rather, spend everyday positively, wisely, judiciously and industriously as well.
Challenges are success catalysts in disguise. Yes of course, a catalyst is an organic substance that speeds up a chemical reaction. Similarly to that, challenges are catalystic in nature. Because, they are meant to quicken one to succeed in life and not at all for him or her to fail. Thus, do take up all your challenges. Because, they are for your good or betterment.
Challenges of life are by no means meant to weaken any human. Rather, they are designed to strengthen you. That is to say, whenever one is challenged, he or she is indirectly being energized for the task ahead. Yes! that’s one of the things that challenges do for us.
Challenges of life do seem heart-rending to some people i.e. challenges seem to be causing overwhelming distress to some/most people. But you can/will only be overwhelmed by challenges of life. The moment you mistake them for what they are not. For, as far as I'm corncerned. Challenges are naturally designed to break you and eventually to remould/reform you so that you can be/become who/what you've been destined to be/become.
Change is inevitable to a large extent. Yes! because everyone or everything changes with time. Even if you are reluctant to change personally, positively, attitudinally, intellectually or mentally. God, life and time must change you facially, visually, bodily, emotionally, agewise, healthwise and otherwise. Anyway, your willingness to flow with positive change can help you to be or become vibrant at the highest level and eventually help you to live and enjoy your life to the fullest. Thus, do pave way for positive change.
Character is the most important and differentiating aspect of human life. In my view, when Wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when Health is lost, something is lost; but when Character is lost, everything is lost. You can judge the Character of a woman/man by how she/he treats fellow people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people and animals who can't fight back. Character is the biggest asset, so don't lose it for any price.
