Reasons To Challenge Yourself #Motivation
October 8, 2019 Posted by Y2 Yoga Blog
Challenging yourself is healthy.
Believe it or not, pain (sometimes) is a good thing. Setting a goal for yourself, working through it, and completing it, is amazing for your mental health, confidence, and growth.
“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” – unknown
Yes, change is good. Growth is good. When you go through hard things (even the simple things can sometimes take a toll on us), you come out of them knowing yourself a little better, and you become stronger; whether that be physically stronger, mentally stronger, or both.
Maybe just try to accept a challenge to feel the exhilaration of victory.
Challenges make life interesting. Defeating them makes like MEANINGFUL.
If you’re not challenging yourself, you will never realize the things you can actually do, and the person you can truly be. We were meant to be challenged. We were meant to go through hard things. The victories shape us into who we are supposed to be. And the strength we received on our way to victory, will help us when the next challenge comes our way. Don’t skip out on something you know you can take on. And don’t forget,
“Failure is simply an opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” – Henry Ford
Challenges are a win win. You learn and grow regardless of the outcome. It’s all in the way you look at it. So don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits. Every challenge that comes our way, is life giving us another chance to become who we are meant to be.
Life doesn’t require us to be the best, only that we try our best.
