We humans love our comfort zone. It’s safe here. We know who we are in our jobs, our skills, and even our relationships. No nasty surprises jolt us. Life is predictable, but it’s also stagnant and boring. We may be stuck in a rut of our own making.
It’s time to challenge yourself. Take up an exciting hobby. Learn a new skill. Go for the job you want. Why now? WHY NOT? Each day that passes is another day you lose to inertia. Our minds crave new experiences. Feed your brain!
Three Reasons to Challenge Yourself
- You May be Missing Out on Great Opportunities – Do you daydream about a new job? Maybe you’re lacking a few skills or experience. Don’t stay in your dead-end job. Take some online courses. Volunteer with a few nonprofits to build up your experience. At the very least, you’ll find out whether or not you want to pursue that particular dream
- Life Won’t Wait While You Dither – Opportunities for growth and happiness are everywhere. They can pass us by if we don’t muster our courage and go for it.
- Our Lives are Finite – Despite the best efforts of the beauty industry, Time continues to pass. Our bodies and brains age. Keep your body moving and your mind alert. You’ll live a longer and healthier life.
What If I Fail?
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”
Meet any successful entrepreneur and you’ll find they’ve had their fair share of failures. It’s hard to believe they experience hiccups when you see the abundance they have in success. Many would tell you they learned more from their failures than anything else.
I believe the greatest failure in life is not to try at all.
Be Positive. Be Happy. Be Well.
