Accept Challenges So That You May Feel the Exhilaration of Victory

Challenges are essential to growth and development. When faced with a challenge, we have the opportunity to discover new skills and strengths or fail miserably. How you respond to a challenge will define you as a person. Challenges are great tests of our abilities, character, and resolve—and they can be really fun at the same time. But many people shy away from challenges because they’re afraid of failing or looking silly in front of others. It is this kind of thinking that holds us back from achieving our potential.
Change Your Thinking
One of the biggest reasons people don’t accept challenges is that they think too narrowly about what challenges really are. A challenge doesn’t have to be some huge, daunting task. It can be something as simple as making a new friend or calling up an old one. The key is to think bigger. Challenge yourself to make one new connection each week or to approach someone you admire and ask them about their life and work. If you accept challenges as a regular part of life, you will naturally grow as a person and improve your social skills. You’ll become more comfortable with yourself and your abilities, and you’ll open yourself up to new experiences and interactions.
Try Something New
You may say that you’re not interested in trying anything new, but that’s not true. We all have moments when we try something new, even if it’s as simple as trying a new restaurant. The difference is that people who are drawn to challenges will do these things regularly and without any sort of prompting. They might do it because they’re bored, or they might do it because they genuinely want to try something new. If you’re not challenging yourself regularly, you’re not growing as a person and you’re missing out on a lot of opportunities to have fun and meet new people. So make it a point to try something new every week. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy; sometimes the simplest things can be the most rewarding.
Say Yes to New Opportunities
Accepting opportunities can be a great way to challenge yourself and push yourself outside of your comfort zone. But opportunities can come in many forms, and they don’t have to be huge or life-changing. You can challenge yourself to be a better friend by offering to babysit for a friend who just had a baby, or you can challenge yourself to read more by setting a goal to read one book per month. These are very simple challenges that anyone can do, but they also have the power to greatly improve your life and the lives of those around you. You will also be amazed at how you’ll grow and improve as a person as a result of accepting and meeting new challenges. And there are many ways to do this: Join a club, take a class, or volunteer your time. You can even challenge yourself to do something that scares you every now and then.
Take a Small Step Forward
If you’re having a hard time accepting challenges, try taking a small step forward. Challenging yourself to do something small is a great way to ease yourself into accepting challenges and making changes. Easily bored people can sometimes find it hard to settle on a single goal or dream because they always want to be exploring new things. For these people, it can be helpful to challenge themselves to focus on one thing for a short period of time. Take a course, build a skill, or read a book. Focus all of your energy on that one thing, and you’ll have learned a lot more in a shorter period of time. And you’ll also be taking a step toward accepting challenges.
