"Nobody improves the world without first improving themselves."
"If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you."
We've explored the subject of Challenge and Change twice before, once from the angle of MG's challenge journey and the perspective of "all life is an experiment," and once again to explore jumping into new challenges with a "now or never" attitude.
There isn't a topic as critical to The Habit Factor's fiber as challenge and change; The Habit Factor methodology is designed to guide you through your transformation on your way to your goals.
But the question still remains: Life is already hard enough. Why do we need to throw in a massive undertaking like an Ironman, a half-marathon, writing a book, or whatever monster goal you have hovering in the back of your mind?
One answer: It's because life itself is challenging, and change is a great constant that challenging ourselves with goals makes us stronger and more resilient. Challenges will always be present so who do you think is going to fare better? The person who's constantly giving herself challenges or the person always seeking comfort?
Here's another reason: We can either intentionally influence and direct the changes in our life or let life throw at us what it may. Why not put ourselves in the driver's seat?
And, finally, one more reason: When we direct our own change, we don't cling to the past. New challenges inspire us to keep evolving and reinventing ourselves.
Listen in for more inspiration on creating challenges to make yourself stronger, grittier and more resilient, and how the Habit Factor methodology can keep you going through life's inevitable attempts to derail you on the path to your goals.
