The Challenge Factor in Life...

Wouldn't it be great if life was simple and straight? No challenges, no hassles. Would you like that?

Do you feel sick of the daily challenges of your life? Do you feel that they are sucking your energy slowly?

In a video game, every adventure, roadblock, challenge and obstacle is a source of pleasure. As you pass each stage in a game, you feel proud and powerful.

A similar feeling can be had when playing chess. The game is full of challenges but somehow it's fun. Don't like chess? Alright..take ANY other game you like.

Games are designed in a way that they are naturally challenging.

You love them.

Then what seems to be the issue with the challenges you face in your life?

Here's the key: there are only two ways to live your life. You can either blame the universe for keeping you deprived of the good things in life, and curse everything that happens around you, including your challenges (of course!) OR, you can choose to live all this as an adventure, just like you would in an adventure game.

Hellen Keller, a terrific human being who was unfortunately (well, not really) blind, mute and deaf (yes, really), said:

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing".

What is your problem then?

Here's what you need to do right away.

Bless those challenges. Bless those moments which have shown you the hardest time of your life. They are the ones which make you stronger from inside. They awaken within you the sleeping giant who would never otherwise awaken, no matter what.

Enough challenges awaken something very powerful inside you. Whether it's a video game or life itself....there
comes a time when you find yourself saying:

"ENOUGH! I'll take it no more..."

Mark this moment. When you reach this magical moment, know that it is the beginning point of all success in life...also referred to as "Burning Desire" by Sir Napoleon Hill in his legendary book 'Think and Grow Rich'.

Being sick of hardships is not a solution. You are much more capable than that. Overall, human beings are amazing creatures. Being a human, you carry infinite capabilities inside us. However, they have been very secretively hidden inside us by our creator. Unless stimulated enough, they keep on lying dormant. Challenges, hardships, embarrassing experiences, bad situations - all act as stimulants.

Go back and see the challenges you have faced so far in your life. You will notice a very peculiar thing about them. Each challenge left you strengthened and more powerful even if it seemed like it hurt you on a material level.

This is an indication by mother nature that material level is only the surface level. Being attached to it is like clinging to an ocean wave. You can never be sure if you have it in your total control.

However, the powers lying dormant inside you are permanent and powerful. In a constantly changing world where everything is unpredictable, only a human being who has discovered these powers and the strength they give can stand with courage and confidence.

Here's a very simple act of gaining power right now -

"Accept your daily challenges as gifts. Thank the universe for choosing you to be the one to discover your hidden potential as a human being."

Ask yourself the following questions whenever you face an obstacle:

"What is not perfect yet?"

"What do I really want out of this situation?"

"How can I turn this around in my favour?"

"What can I learn from this situation?"

"In what ways does this situation is giving me more strength and stability?"

Insist on the answers. Your mind will give them to you sooner or later.

Do the above little but mind-blowing exercises each day of your life and see yourself gaining more power with every passing moment.
