Before you face a challenge...

I read this quote today:

"Before you face a challenge, you have to be able to embrace it. Before you can embrace it, you have to be able to identify and talk about it." 

I think a lot of us assume we know what challenges we're facing, but our assumptions aren't helping us. We have to take a serious look at the challenges in our lives and talk about them out loud, with other people. Only then will we really know what the challenge is, and, how we can deal it with appropriately.
