Challenges and Fears

Challenges are part of our journey in life.

If something is challenging you and pushing you the edge, it means that it’s helping you to be who you want to be.

“What doesn’t kill you – makes you stronger”

Basically,  you should be happy and welcome your challenges. Don’t laugh …I know it sounds funny or too easy to say because it’s all about attitude. If you will welcome your challenges in open arms and your mind-set will be ready for battle, you’ll see that each battle you win you become much smarter and you’ll knows better what you are doing and what you should do.Each obstacle we are passing we are learning something from it. That’s why Challenges have the responsibility for our personal growth – without them we won’t be able to try to follow our dreams.  When you are facing a challenge, in order to pass the test you need to do few things:

  1. Focus – focus on your goal, get your mind-set on the target, give yourself a deadline to get to your goal.
  2. Motivation – find a sentence, a quote or even a song that has the power to motivate yourself towards your goal, that when you say it or sing it you will feel like a super hero, empowered.
  3. Positive energy – be positive, even if you are not getting any support from your surrounding. If you will be positive you will change other people’s attitude too, which will make your life a bit easier.
  4. Action – do whatever it takes to get things done. Work hard in order to design yourself and pass those challenges, Because these challenges will get you closer to fulfilling your dreams.


Fears are part of our biggest challenge in life.  You shouldn’t be afraid from these challenges. Face your fears.

Most people won’t live their life the way they really want it – Do you know why? Because they are living constantly their fears. I say,  Be aware of your fears and try to control them, try to be mindfulness of them and act regardless. Knowing they are exist and taking a risk to face your fears will help you in your journey to your happiness. Wants to know how?

I will tell you my motto for life:  Making a big life change is scary. (But so is other things in life) Do you know what is even scarier? Regrets. And regrets are not something you want to live with for the rest of your life.

So you better be strong and try to confront your fears. I have the best example for you: I am afraid of heights, do you think that I am not travelling overseas because of my fears? No way! I am using my super powers to control it, by myself. (I really don’t want to transfer this fear to my kids)  I know my fears and I try to control them every time I am going on an airplane.

“If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.” – Robert H. Schuller

As part of our journey in life  we have to control our fears and face those challenges, bravely. That’s part of who we are. Don’t let go of your dreams only because your are too afraid or it’s too hard.
