There is no easy way out of doing hard work.
Our mind always tries to escape challenging things that are hard because our brain is programmed to choose easy tasks over complex ones.
Ironically, the opposite of challenge is acceptance – accepting your fear and your miserable life – and not doing anything to change it is the worst thing one could do.
Don’t be that person who does nothing except blaming their luck and life because there is nothing easier than playing the role of a victim.
Just get up from that couch and bring your thoughts into action because sitting around doing nothing is not going to make you feel better.
We don’t challenge ourselves even after we fully know the positive outcome of doing challenging things. Most people always choose the easy way out and end up living a gloomy life.
People who settle for less are losers.
Well, they might give others an explanation that how satisfied they are with their life, but deep down inside, they know how it feels to be trapped in their jobs, miserable relationships, etc. But there is one thing which you need to keep in mind while attempting challenging tasks and that is
“Never give up” “You might win some, you might lose some. But you go in, you challenge yourself, you become a better man, a better individual, a better fighter.
” Conor McGregor
So here are 5 reasons why you should do challenging things.
1. It Will Drive Away Your Fears
The cycle of fear is really simple, if you run away from your fear, it will chase after you.
But if you turn the tables and you start chasing after your fear, it will run away from you.
By trying challenging things you expose yourself to your fear.
You expose yourself to situations you are not comfortable to deal with.
And the best way to defeat your fear is by facing them.
With regular exposure to things that are out of your comfort zone, your amygdala becomes more used to those situations and you won’t face any type of fear and anxiety next time you do those things.
Your mind will develop resistance to uncomfortable situations which will help you in the long run because you won’t be afraid to try challenging things.
We don’t push ourselves beyond the limit because the fear of embarrassing ourselves often takes the front seat. But you never know what the outcome will be.
You just need to fight the bugbear inside your brain and do that thing you know deep down you need to.
2. Your Personality Will Stand Out
Personality is not about having good looks, being tall or having a body like a Spartan.
It’s all about how you represent yourself in-front of others.
What makes one stand out from the crowd? Obviously, when someone possesses qualities others don’t or when someone can do things others can’t.
When you start doing things that no one else has the guts to do, you consequently stand out from the crowd.
Once people start seeing you as a person who is always ready to get on board with difficult tasks, they start treating you differently because you are capable of doing things they can only dream about.
People around will find you compelling. You will be radiating strong willpower around you because you are not that kind of person who avoids things that are hard to do. You get into it and finish your tasks.
You are a doer you have your own trademark.
3. You Can Reach Unimaginable Goals
It is not an easy thing to reach your goal, reaching goal is really hard and challenging because of the urge of instant gratification.
Though reaching your goal is not impossible.
You have to hustle to get there.
Overnight success is myth.
Always choose “smart work” over “hard work”. People fail to reach their goals because they are not willing to work hard and challenging tasks which they have to do in order to reach their goals.
But, when you are continually pushing yourself, forcing yourself to do challenging things there’s nothing going to stop you from reaching your goals.
The more hustle you pour, more will be the outcome.
As you start achieving your small goals your courage and hunger will increase, which will force you to set colossal goals. Then by having patience and pouring more “smart work” you will accomplish those colossal goals.
In all these times one thing will be constant and that is no matter how many big and unimaginable goals you achieve the hunger to achieve more will never end.
4. No More Blame Game
This thing really sucks.
Most of the time we blame our colleagues and partners for our mistakes.
Because it’s easy to blame someone else instead of blaming yourself.
There are very few people in the world who are willing to go beyond their comfort zone and expand their horizon.
That’s why most of the time you will be on your own. No drama to worry about, no need to ask someone about what they think and their opinions.
You can decide what to do and when.
There won’t be any outside pressure on you.
And working like this will enhance the creative side of your brain along with it will make you more independent.
You fail or succeed! Gain or lose! It will be all on your head for you. No blame games.
5. High Level Of Confidence
Having good confidence is essential.
Negative thoughts about your own is confidence killer.
But doing challenging things is one of your habit now, you believe in yourself. You are doing things others can’t. You are coming out of your comfort zone. You are achieving your goals. You are motivating others.
Your friends and colleagues adore you.
Now you are a KILLER.
If this is not helping you gain confidence, then what else will?
While doing challenging things, you will feel an overload of confidence in you which you will start radiating around you. Sooner or later you and people around you will also start noticing that.
Doing challenging things allows you to be stronger and better version of yourself. Playing it safe and not doing challenging things is the key to failure.
