Tested by life
Do you want to know what you’re capable of? Then get yourself in situations where you’ll be tested by life.
You cannot acquire capability and confidence just by admiring them and wanting them. You have to be tested, challenged.
The way to know for sure how to do something, is to do it. To be absolutely confident in your ability you must experience making use of that ability in challenging situations.
Seek out challenges, and what you’ll find are opportunities to expand your own competence. Be willing to be tested, and you’ll be able to grow stronger.
Go where you’ll be compelled to learn, to improve, to innovate, to endure. When the situation demands that you must, you will.
Choose often, willingly, to be tested by life. And you’ll enable yourself to pass with flying colors.
