Five Ways To Face And Overcome Challenges
Challenges are those things that we face whether they are voluntary or involuntary. Most of us have faced or had to deal with challenges like having to figure out how a bill is going to be paid after a job loss, or how you are going to go from point A to point B when your car has broken down.
Then there are those challenges that we make ourselves like losing weight, improving our business, or obtaining an educational degree.
Decide that you will win and be victorious.
There are times when you’re faced with a challenge, you may want to give up before you even attempt it. But in order to overcome the challenge whatever it may be, you must first decide that you are willing to face it then tell yourself you can overcome it and you will be victorious.
Get Some Energy
Sometimes facing challenges can deplete your energy. I can attest to that. Sometimes a challenge can seem so great that it may tend to make you feel like you need to put it off until another time. What helped me muster up energy to face some of my challenges is exercise. That’s right, exercise. I have found that when I took the time to work out, I had more energy and this motivated me to start and complete my challenge
Take One Bite At A Time
Take one bite at a time. It sounds simple enough but you’d be surprise at the fact that some people try handle large task and challenge in extremely short periods of time causing them to be frustrated. Sometimes we want to tackle things head on and all at once. But try taking small steps; do one thing at a time. Some people like to do the easiest part of a task first saving the hardest for last and some like to do just the opposite.
Write It Down
Write things down. Write down your challenges. Write down what you want to accomplish and when or the time period that you want to complete or overcome your challenge. Write down how you intend to face or approach your challenge, what you need to do and how you feel about your challenge. Writing things down helps you see and remember what needs to be done, it reminds you of what you to focus on.
Also write down your activity during the
challenge. This will help you see where you are and how close you are to getting things accomplished. Writing things down as you go along will also help you spot problem areas that you may need to work harder on. This can give you different ways and ideas to tackle your challenges.
One of the big things in facing challenges is knowing yourself and you limitations. You cannot face or tackle a challenge like the next person can.
I heard about a guy who set a challenge for himself in his business. He would stay up day and night getting little to no sleep for several months. He wanted to not only prove to himself that he could do it but he was on a determined mission. Though it took him a little longer than he had planned, He eventually quit his job, but he not only sacrificed his health by not getting proper rest but he sacrificed time with family, and days off from work. He ultimately had domestic problems which he was able to work out slowly.
Not everyone can do this and quite frankly it would be an unhealthy choice on many levels to do so. This is why it is so important to know yourself and your limitations, know and understand what you are and are not willing to sacrifice.
Challenges, no matter how hard they are can be faced with the right mind set, proper planning, and the right motivation.
Hopefully, whatever your problems or challenges you maybe facing something I’ve shared here will be able to help you.
