Taking On Challenges

Life is full of challenges. They are not supposed to affect you but are supposed to help you discover the inner you. Most people are afraid to take them. I have learnt one thing over time- Accepting challenges that life throws upon you, only makes you stronger in the end. Even if you fail, you have learnt something at the end of it.

Never be scared of failure, learn to face it.

“The word “crisis” is from the Greek, meaning “a moment to decide.”

Never limit your options by quitting on a challenge. Change your path- Find a new path. Do simply anything, but never give up.

Either someone at some stage in life can come in your way or you can challenge yourself with a goal, something that you really want to achieve. Treat the journey towards that goal as a learning experience to better yourself. Remember, you only see obstacles in your way when you take your sight off the target.

Like everything in life, if you want to get something you need to have the determination that will keep you going. If you are not committed, you will never do what is needed to achieve the goals you want.

I was recently at a conference where one of the speakers spoke of dreaming. Dreaming is absolutely essential. You need to dream and picture yourself achieving something, to actually get there.

Be realistic when creating your goals by observing your current stage and position in life. Also, you must set your priorities right. Remember, that every step along the way to achieving a goal is just as important as the last step. There are no shortcuts to success and the harder you work, the sweeter is the reward.

There is no time like the present. The one thing worse than not setting a goal, it is setting a goal and leaving it to sit in words and dreamland.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

That is why it is called the present.”

  13. That’s how it is. Opposition in life is a must. And I think that we can also feel our sweetest satisfaction in times of trials. Struggles and failures is a part of life that will give us an opportunity for growth. If I fail a hundred times, I’ll get up a hundred times also.

    Challenge is fantastic. It is a good life drive. In my case though it turned to be addiction.. don’t be scared. If I don’t have some sort of challenge at work, at home.. I could sleep all day. Everything depends on how the things are organized in your head. One is sure, once you heat one challenge you want more and that is something what can really push you forward.. and remember… never doubt in yourself..
