- Take action. Stressful situations affect all of us from time to time, yet these challenges do not need to hold us back. Choose to start your new endeavor by bravely taking action and confronting stressors directly as they arise.
- Find your unique strengths. Being conscious of who you are, being true to yourself, and acknowledging your assets and abilities takes a lot of the uncertainty out of life. Harness your own personal power to wrestle with whatever stressors are getting in the way of your progress.
- Give yourself a thumbs-up daily. Deliberately choose to be brave in confronting challenges every day. Give yourself a mental thumbs-up every time you do!
And don’t forget, there are supports out there, ready to help you—the Steve Fund is one of them—if any of the challenges you are confronting seem too big to face alone.
We wish you a happy Spring 2019, and encourage you to get excited about setting some goals that matter to you. And don’t be surprised if you exceed your own expectations throughout the year!
