How many times have you set a goal, started working on it and the moment it gets challenging you gave up? If you do want to accomplish your goals you need to go through all the challenges otherwise you´ll never accomplish anything of great value.
We´re all goal oriented and if you don´t choose and set your goals someone else will do it for you. Most people don´t set goals the way they should and they let life happen to them so they end up working for a company that has goals that are not aligned with what they want and every time they find an obstacle their mindset is more towards failure because they´re not really motivated to work even harder on a project or a goal that doesn´t motivates them.
The best goals are the ones that challenge you, you need to find ways to grow physically, mentally and emotionally, to become better, to improve every day and be the best version you can be every day. That´s what challenges help you accomplish and the reason why you set goals is to make it easier for you to be able to get pass those challenges by focusing and working on something you actually love, something that´s interesting to you so that every time you´re face with a challenge you are more motivated to work and do anything you need to do to overcome that challenge or obstacle because you know it will get you closer to what you really want to accomplish or achieve.
A challenge means that you are getting closer to your goal and the reason why you see a particular situation as a challenge is because it represents something new to you and that means there is something you need to do differently, you may need to learn a new skill, you may need to work a little harder or longer, you may need to adjust your plan or you can give up thinking it´s so hard and it´s impossible for you.
Challenges are there to help you grow, when you set a goal it means you need to become someone else, there´s something you need to learn and adjust in your life in order to accomplish that goal, you can´t be the same person. There´s always something you need to learn or improve and the moment you learn a new skill and you keep getting better you are changing, that new knowledge is making you who you need to be to accomplish that specific goal.
Even life is challenging, every time you encounter yourself in a new situation it´s a challenge and your perspective is what determines your result. When you start college or your first job, every time you start a new job, when you change home or school all those represents challenge. If someone you care about is going through a hard situation financially or health related that´s also a challenge.
Life is full of challenging moments and most of us when we find ourselves in one of this challenging moments we get paralyzed, we want to be and feel comfortable, we´re looking for easy paths and hacks but the reality is that if you want to live a life you are proud you´re going to be faced with so many challenges. A boring life leads to procrastination even when you feel secure, you can have a secure job, a secure pay check but we´re not designed to live a life of security and comfort, we´re designed to live a life of adventures and challenges those adventures and challenges will make you grow physically, emotionally and mentally and that´s what we need, we need to be strong enough to go through life because it can be difficult sometimes. And this difficulties and all challenges can seem bigger when you´re working for someone else´s goals and to make it even worse at the end you´ll regret because you didn´t live the life you know you could just because you preferred that safety and comfort.
So, life is challenging anyway, make sure you´re working for the goals and what you want to accomplish and make sure the challenges you need to go through are the ones that get you closer to your goals, to what you want. Don´t let life be boring, take charge and set a goal that gets you out of your comfort zone and start living as you´re supposed to live. Know that you can accomplish those big goals and overcome any obstacle if you have the motivation and that motivation comes from something you do want to achieve.
