How have you challenged yourself today? Have you challenged yourself today?
Each and everyone of us should be doing at least one thing every day that challenges our brain and helps us grow and develop.
This challenge could be as simple as learning a new vocabulary word. For instance, do you know what the word ineluctable means? If you don’t, you are going to have to look it up yourself because I’m not giving you the answer!
You could challenge yourself to read and research a topic of which you have no prior knowledge. Everyday we read or hear about a topic that we’ve never even heard of before...take the time to find out more information.
You could challenge yourself to take a class and learn a new skill. The new skill you develop could become a treasured hobby or even become a stepping stone in your career development.
You could challenge yourself to discover a better, or more efficient, method for completing your routine tasks, the tasks that you don’t like doing so you might as well find a way to make them fun.
You could challenge yourself to replace one habit that is not beneficial to your life with one that is more beneficial.
You could challenge yourself to be kind to that annoying person who grates on your nerves whom you have to work with every day.
You could challenge yourself to find something good within everyone you deal with every day.
You could challenge yourself to look at the world around you from a different perspective.
Each day provides us with endless opportunities to challenge ourselves, to learn something new, and to grow as individuals.
