Would you like to know my little secret?
Here it is...
Most people avoid challenges like a plague and when the challenges do come, they typically complain and do all they can to run from it. I do the exact opposite!
I don't run from, complain about, or avoid challenges. Instead, I create them! Oh yeah, you heard me right, I CREATE THEM!
Now why in the world would you do THAT Coach Luc?
When you understand exactly what challenges provide and how many benefits come from them, you would do the same.
Here's what I understand about challenges...
Every single thing you want to accomplish in life has a set of challenges associated with them. Even when you live without any real goals, there is a plan in play at all times for your life and you are required to follow that plan in one way or another. This plan, if not followed, will have to be persuaded and pushed with challenges (lessons) until you are back on the path. The longer it takes for you to learn the lesson, the longer you will experience the challenge. If you want to stop the challenge, you must simply learn the lesson and then life goes on with relative ease, with a steady and consistent flow.
If you're experiencing challenges in your life, you must simply ask: "What am I to learn from this?" and then spend your time finding the answer. If you don't find the answer, you can't learn the lesson and the challenge continues.
Now... here's what I've learned. The only and I literally mean the ONLY way to grow as an individual or as a group, is through challenges. There are no lessons in ease and there is no growth in comfort. So, I can do like everyone else and wait for challenges to come by complete chance and grow at a slow and unpredictable pace or... I can speed up the entire process by challenging myself day after day after day. Instead of growing an inch, I can grow 100 inches! This is self growth on steroids!
If you want to take complete control of your life, you need to control your very challenges. Once YOU are in control of your challenges, you can boost your productivity and potential by 100x.
You only have one life to live and if you wait for challenges to come your way or worst, you avoid them all together, you are very limited as to who you can become and what you can accomplish. But if you take it into your own hands and fast forward your growth and development 100x, simply by creating your own challenges everyday, your personal potential is limitless.
Want a second, more motivational reason? By creating your own challenges, you will be stronger and more capable of facing the unexpected challenges that may come your way.
Start now to find little ways to challenge yourself and don't back down. Take control of your life by taking control of your challenges and you will have power that is unattainable otherwise.
