Embrace Your Challenges!

“It’s not the future you are afraid of. It’s the fear of the past repeating itself that haunts you.” – T.W.W
What would your life be right now if you made a decision a year ago that you will never allow fear to stop you? “Fear is your best friend or your worst enemy. It’s like fire. If you can control it, it can cook for you; it can heat your house. If you can’t control it, it can burn everything around you and destroy you.” – “Iron” Mike Tyson.
See the challenge as a door that leads you to newness. When I look at my life right now, I realise that losing my parents at a young age introduced me to serious challenges in life, there were times where I had to live from meal to meal, but that was preparing me for bigger things in life. I am where I am today because I handled those tough situations and I learned so much from them. Running away or looking for an easy way out from your challenges keeps you weak. That’s why most people are forever crying and complaining about everything even the slightest thing that makes them uncomfortable because they are weak.
Most people are even praying and asking God every day for more strength. He answers by introducing challenges in your life to deal with as it is the only way to toughen you up, it falls under ‘tough love’. They then complain and say, “Why me Lord, why give me so many challenges?” Well, God answers our prayers. At times, he doesn’t even wait for you to ask for challenges, like in my case, he just gave them to me at a young age and I had to ‘grow up’ quickly. He knew he was getting me ready for bigger things. Stop complaining and embrace your challenges, it’s the only way to become stronger and wiser.
If you have been buried or entombed by fear, you still have the power and capacity to resurrect yourself and your dreams. Believe and say it’s possible. When you say it’s possible you don’t mean you know how to do it but all you are saying is, there’s got to be a way around this, this thinking shifts your mind-set and leads to creativity.
My major fear as Veli Ndaba, is to take my gifts and talents to the grave with me, this is a sin. This FEAR is what drives me every day to inspire and make people realise they are more than they can ever begin to imagine, to make people realise that they have only scratched the surface of their potential, that’s my gift.
You are God’s highest form of creation, your gifts and talents were given to you to make this world a better place than you found it, flatly refuse to take them to your grave with you!
