The difficult roads of life are often the most rewarding. It’s the challenges that form our character. It’s the challenges that expose our capabilities, show us the skills we need to develop further. It’s the challenges that strengthen our resolve, lead us to growth, and gain us valuable experience.
When we always travel the easy road, the most comfortable route, it’s our growth that suffers. By never exposing ourselves to those challenges outside of our comfort zone, we stop growing. After a while, it’s our confidence that will start to diminish; our confidence in ourselves to overcome, to accomplish new skills or to bounce back from failure.
As difficult as it may be, try to embrace the challenges of your life as a chance to improve yourself. Don’t wish them away; accept, embrace, and then grow.
