May 2017_3We continually face challenges – some challenges are of our choosing – such as deciding to change your career or begin a new hobby. Some challenges are thrust upon us such as illnesses or a sudden job loss.

Sometimes we shy away from accepting challenges that are of our choosing due to fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of what others will think of us and so on. However, accepting challenges helps us to learn, grow and live a passionate and productive life. Here are some tips to help you accept challenges.

  • Know you don’t have to have all the answers immediately before accepting a challenge. Learning keeps you young.
  • Don’t fear failing. It is by occasionally failing that you learn lessons to help you move forward.
  • Challenges help keep you youthful accepting challenges is a youthful attitude. Think back to when you were a young girl and you looked forward to new challenges – learning to drive, beginning a new relationship, getting your first job. Life was full of exciting challenges.
