Challenge yourself and why it is a great idea!
There is always room for improvement when talking about our knowledge. The eagerness of learning new things to be better in life. This should be our second main focus since the first focus is to be happy in Life.
We need to get out of our comfort zone to be better and excel, easier said than done. Even for me it was difficult to consider something out of my comfort zone but there is always something to improve.
See below what could be the first way to challenge myself and even for you, it could be interesting!
I was a bit reluctant to write about different ways to challenge ourself but said why not and see what i will come up with.
My challenge was around learning a new language, this was a huge task for me. I already talk 3 languages and decided two weeks ago to learn a new language. This is out of my comfort zone and this is why i decided to try it.
Decided to learn Korean ,why you may ask? Was watching a TV show on Netflix called: Bo Dong Soung! A small women with incredible strengh growing up in Korea. Since the show is in Korean and i’m a bit tired of watching and reading at the same time the traduction.
This is my challenge to learn the Korean language until i’m abble to have a conversation with a native speaker and watch any Korean show i want.
- Why learn a new language?
- Expend your knowledge
- Get out of your comfort zone
- Develop new skills
- Give you access to new connection
- New opportunities
- And more…
Give yourself a chance and try to learn a new language that you have a interest and would love to learn. Even if you think it doesn’t make sense, try it ,you will be surprise by the results.
For me, i’m already abble to say , hi , how are you, Yes -No, i’m hungry and more in Korean. At first, i was really affraid to start with this new language but once the process was ongoing, i was much surprise by my progress.
One more thing, our brain will always tell us at first, it is difficult, you don’t understand this language why learn it. Your crazy, how long it will take you… Once you hear those sentences in your head, you should start learning a new language right away.
This will force you to be stronger in your head, not to always have control and let go your bad habits!
A little help to start: Why not try a app called “Duolingo”. This is great to start learning a new language on the go.
If you want to try learning Korean maybe, never know! Head to this website and see for yourself…
Search on Google , Bing, AppStore or the Google Store to find more great options.
One of the great way to learn and grow as a person is by travelling. Not just by going to the next city but to take the train or even the plane. Why the plane or the train you may ask?
- The plane will give your brain and your body the sensation of flying like a bird, the feeling of beeing alive.
- The train will allow you to see things at a great pace and time to allow your brain to enjoy the surrounding.
Also planning to travel, is a great way to look ahead of something really fun to do. Your body and your emotion will work in full speed mode to accomplish your goal of travelling in the best way possible and to have fun.
What are the challenges you may ask?
- Credit Card or Cash?
- How long to travel?
- Location is it secure?
- Travel alone or family?
- And more…
There is so many questions , we don’t know how to start but this is where it is good for us. To be challenged, to be in fears and not always be in control as i said before.
We do watch on the news this country is bad for travelling compare to another one but we need to search deeper to have the proper information. Have fun while doing your research, see where you would like to travel. Doesn’t need to be expensive, just follow your budget, book in advance, take some insurance and you should be fine.
Easy to say, to learn something new or consider taking a new class or a new challenge. This is where the fun start by taking a new challenge like a new class. Think about something you would like to learn or something you always wanted to do.
- Have a personal trainer to help you lose weight
- Learn to be a computer engineer
- Be a travel consultant
- Be a foreign student for a year
- And much more…
You could be whatever you want, it is only a question of knowing what you really want. Why am talking like that?
In our society, we have the tendency to be in a fear factor scenario and think whatever we want to do is impossible. It is the contraire, whatever you want to do , is possible. By putting your mind onto something and put all the effort possible on your dream, it will happen.
There is a lot of things we could do to improve ourself , by staying in your lane for a moment and focusing on one thing, it should work. Once you are in control of doing one thing ,over and over again until you become a master. It is time to stepup your game and learn more until you become the master of the MASTER.
We should always learn on a daily basis, with our personal experiences, daily tasks and be conscious of what’s happening around us. When you are aware of your entourage, you will become aware of things you never notice before.
Here is a example: Let say you want to by a Volvo and a certain model, once it is in your mind…You should start seeing this car in the street non stop… This is how you become aware of new things around you, try it and you will be surprise by the results.
Challenge yourself and be better ,one day at a time.
