The next time you face a challenge you think is too tough or when life places you in a situation that you feel you cannot handle, think about it for a second. Maybe you can face it, you can handle it. Because, the chances are, that everything in life so far has prepared you for it.

Who you are, what you have learned, what experiences you have had and the people who are in your life have all given you the skills to be able to do this. In fact, I can guarantee that NOBODY else will be able to do it.

The thing is, you might be the only one who would be able to handle the cards you are dealt with. Think of it as “playing position” in poker. Leveraging where your position is in the hand, you can play a better hand than anybody else on that table, because you are in that unique position. Others could have been dealt better cards, but you can still win.
