The power of a challenge


The thought that everithing we have we get out of challenges.Think about it for minute. If you want to achieve something, you have to go out of a comfort zone.

That irritated me a lot before I learned my lesson: challenges have benefits.

Let us say you find it difficult to stay motivated. Setting personal challenges helps you to analyze where you are and where you want to be. For me, it is one of the tools to achieve goals and I had been putting off for a long time.

You can change your lifestyle completely through small steps daily to achieve bigger things.

Benefits of challenges

Focus attention

Yes we all understand the different motivation we still tend to lose it. Focusing on small daily tasks makes it easy to miss the bigger picture. Daily Commitment helps to keep track on the process you make.

Build self-confidence

Finished tasks or accomplished goals strengthen our confidence. It gives the satisfaction of achievement. We can use this motivational factor for another challenge. It gives the feeling “I did it!” and then we are able to do anything. So we have to be realistic about our strengths and weaknesses. Anyway, accomplished tasks build up confidence.

What can we challenge ourselves with? With anything we want. It is all about commitment.

Think about the next points before taking on new challenge:

  • How long do you need to form a new habit?

You may think 21 days are enough or perhaps it can take more. I found out 30 days to be the best period. It is enough to develop new habits or sort of the lifestyle, but it is not exhausting.

  • How much time are you ready to set aside daily?

If you want to keep it, you can start with 15 minutes training and continue to increase number of exercise. But if you do something like writing, you can set daily goals by number of words or time spent on writing and editing. So be aware how much time you need per day.

  • What is your final goal?

Considering number of days and amount of time available, you estimate the desirable result. it must be achievable.
How can you Break It Down? It is important to be able to perform small achievable tasks everyday.
