One Word





There is one word that, when used properly, can solve many, many problems. Sure, there are many words that if used properly, can solve many problems... but let us look a little closer at one great example....




COMPLAINING
HARDSHIP
ADVERSITY
LANGUAGE BARRIERS
LAZINESS
EXCUSES
NEGATIVITY
GROUPTHINK ("THE YESMAN")
EXPENDABILITY AS AN EMPLOYEE OR PERSON

Any of the above words occur when we allow circumstances into our lives, or allow circumstances to remain as they are. Basically, without changing the status quo, we are left with those 9 unhappy horizontal words. The one word outlined vertically, Challenge, is a great way to overcome our circumstances and change the status quo.

Basically, to quit complaining and ACT... to quit being a victim and DO something... to start LISTENING in order to COMMUNICATE... to get your ass MOVING... to OWN up to your ACTIONS and not give excuses... to quit dragging people down and start INSPIRING... to stop being a "yes man" and start INNOVATING or SHARING your ideas... helps you STAND OUT from the crowd and become indespensable. These are all ACTION words, folks. Just as CHALLENGING is an ACTION.

This is all to point out that life is a contact sport, so get dirty... don't sit in the stands and yell at the refs or say "why can't my team win?" Get on the playing feild of life, get your jersey dirty, and use that ONE WORD to improve your life and your condition... CHALLENGE.
