Don’t be afraid of challenges, let them take you somewhere new, relax and be awesome.

Challenges actually

Challenges and obstacles can be scary. But when we’re afraid of them, they prevent us from expressing ourselves and achieving what we want. The fear of challenges can be a trap when we let it take over. In the end, being afraid of stepping out our comfort zone is like driving a powerful car with the handbrake on all the time.

Obstacles are part of everybody’s life, and facing them can be hard sometimes. But if we give up on our goals, believing they are beyond our reach, we go nowhere. That’s sad, but it’s how it is. On the other hand, when we have the strength to think “If I just practice and work on this, I can do it,” something special happens.

When we undertake a completely new situation, however hard the challenges we have to face at first, we must keep trying until we can see the first results. And the moment we see results, everything changes. That moment gives us the motivation and the enthusiasm we need in order to keep going.

What happens next is that we learn not to be too afraid of failures, and we understand how important they are for our growth. This is what gives us the energy to face new, unusual, and hard situations in life, and what makes us understand that we are far more worth than we believe.

The truth is that we actually need to face challenges, because they are our best teachers. Always. We should never be afraid of them, but let them take us by the hand and let them guide us.

  1. Excellent post! So true, something as simple as telling yourself “I can” can truly make a world of difference. Love it!

  2. I am sure: what we can or can’t is only limited by our thoughts, our mind. Comprendre, c’est se sentir capable de faire. André Gide.

  3. Great words! Challenges and obstacles are only scares when we choose to view them as a prevention. When we choose to accept them as opportunities for learning and growing; they truly do become a great friend for our life.

  4. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!
