When you think about your dreams, how important are they for you? What are you willing to make so you can make your dreams come through? What obstacles are between you and your ideal life? Would you like to overcome them? How are you going to do that?
Life is not easy and it’s not meant to be easy. If it would be easy, we wouldn’t have emotions. In my opinion, the greatest satisfactions come from overcoming the biggest challenges. Whenever we encounter a challenge, we tend to run away if the outcome is not big enough. If what we want to accomplish is not important enough for us, we’ll tend to run away whenever we encounter a roadblock. Don’t get me wrong! A challenge isn’t pleasant. It never is because it causes anxiety. If it doesn’t cause that anxiety, then it’s not a problem facing it.
If you challenge yourself, you can develop different skills that can help you later in life. Each wooden chair has been a tree first. That tree faced the challenge of being cut and processed in order to become a chair. We need to model ourselves in order to become how/what we’d like and modeling involves chopping some bits and pieces in several spots. That chopping can hurt, but it’s for the better. That pain is for a better future.
What challenge do you need to face but you’re too afraid to do it just yet?
