Going Through Challenges

“This only use of an obstacle is to be overcome.  All that an obstacle does with brave men is, not to frighten them, but to challenge them.”

Woodrow Wilson

Like everyone else, I do not care for challenges.  They make me stress and feel exhausted.  It always seems like they go on forever.  When people talk to me about their challenges, they are usually angry, frustrated, and crying.  Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone tell me about their challenges with excitement. 

                Although this is how I use to feel about challenges, I am now excited when I face a new challenge.  They are part of life, and they make us grow.  Sometimes, when I am not facing a challenge, I will go out and find a challenge to conquer.  The feeling of accomplishment after getting through a difficult challenge is rewarding.  After I have conquered a challenge, I am joyful and feel accomplished. 

                Once I have celebrated an accomplishment, it is time to find another challenge.  If I wait too long to start a new challenge, I become bored and unfulfilled.  Starting a new challenge always helps me feel like I am living with purpose.  If life is too easy, I don’t learn anything.  Challenges are the best learning experiences.

“Accept the challenges, so that you can feel exhilaration of victory.”

George S. Patton

                Although some find it difficult to get through challenges, it is necessary to succeed in life.  There are six ways that I deal with challenges in my life.  These steps are be thankful for the challenge, make a positive response to challenges a habit, take responsibility for my life, turn challenges into opportunities, connect what I already know with the challenge, and continue to move forward. 

After I started putting these steps into practice, I began to see my stress level and depression decrease.  Now, I am less likely to grumble and complain when things become difficult.  Of course, I am not perfect, so I still am working on these steps and my grumbling during challenges.  It is an on-going process, but I am getting better with every challenge I face.
