When things get challenging in life, the challenges have the propensity to bring us down and make us feel like we are defeated. However this is just an illusion because we do actually have the power within us to rise above whatever might be bringing us down. Learning to view challenges as opportunities to grow means that we can see them as opportunities to "make us" rather than "break us". Challenges give us the opportunity to make us stronger and more resilient and learning to view challenges in this way is empowering and a strengthening.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
