What You Will Learn
Knowing life can be a challenge at times, allows us to surrender with complete acceptance, rather than suffer. Accepting circumstances in no way underscores their impact on your life. It is an inner declaration that everything will turn out all right. It is not conceding in apathy as you might believe.
Challenges are an invitation to accept change. More often than not, the changes occur gradually over time or if you are unaware, somewhat precipitously. If there is resistance, suffering ensues from your unwillingness to embrace what unfolds.
You would agree life undergoes constant change. What unfolds during the initial stages of a significant life transformation may not agree with what you expect. It is the uncertainty of the change which leaves us gasping for breath, rather than the change itself.
Your response to life’s challenges should be to lean into them with openness. Remember, your resistance creates more resistance, thus leading to suffering. Leaning in to your challenges is a mental and emotional confirmation to yield to the resistance by embracing what develops. If you want to develop into a healthy individual, you need challenges.
Challenges polish your talents and improve your skills. They help you become successful in the field you are involved. Most of all, challenges help you discover who you are and how you behave in adversity. When you are successful, you feel confident yet difficult times help you discover your true character.
If you wish to grow and become successful in reaching your full potential, you must challenge yourself. For that, you need to set goals that motivate you. They should be achievable goals, but not too simple. A challenge should be difficult enough so your skills become polished. It is best to divide a big goal into smaller goals for simplicity.
