Dealing with the challenges of life

Updated on May 18, 2017

The Challenge's of life

Challenges are limitless, all life is made up of is challenges. That means all we need to do is work with the challenges, and get through them since that is what life is made up within a limitless capacity.When people think of challenges what do they think of? When does the real work start, throughout anyone's life there are challenges, and they can be limitless, even if you don't think so? It's the way that people deal with them that makes someone who they are. Why not look at a College or University student, or even someone going into the world of work. There are challenges in all these things, first off, getting into the program you want, or finding the job you want.

If you graduate and go to College and University at the age of 17 do you limitless capacity really know what you want to do? What if you don't there are limitations in that too, maybe you fail a class or you need help in a class but are too afraid to ask. Well forget about being afraid just ask for the help that you need you may still have limitations because going to College and University is challenging, but don't give up try your best it will work out in the end.

Life's Challenges

Everyone's life has challenges its how we deal with them and what we make of the challenges, that defines us. The Challenges of life, are what makes us who we are. Everyone has a handicap of some kind, which means they have life's challenges. To get through life is to figure out how to deal with life's challenges to better ourselves and make us who we are today.

Each year of your life, brings new challenges, ups, downs, and new experiences. It is what you choose to do with these experiences that will determine if it is a good or bad decision. Everyone has goals that they set out for themselves throughout the year that they try to reach. With these goals, however, comes new challenges to meet them.

An example, of this, might be getting involved in a sport that you like, soccer or baseball, for the first time. For soccer, you could experience challenges which would include when it rains and you have to miss a game because soccer is played outside and not inside. Or having a coach that always likes to win and gets made when you lose instead of using it as a learning experience. What if you don’t win your first game or even your second game and the coach yells at you, does that mean you give up? No never give up if it is something that you like to do. I know that with me when I was trying to make a decision I would think of the pros and cons first and see, what the outcome was. I would sometimes even have to figure out a different way to do a specific thing that maybe others could do differently. I know that when I was eight and involved in soccer, our coach always wanted to win, which meant he would want us to practice all the time, what about being at school shouldn't we focus on school? I thought at the time it was in the middle of the grade three test. That was the first big test that I had ever had and trying to not think about it was difficult on the soccer field when you had just been doing it all day.

What about just playing the soccer game instead of always winning? you can’t win all the time because then you won’t have anything to improve on in the next practice. So I tried it for that year and because of the experience I had, I decided not to do it the year after. When I did play though it taught me, that there were challenges in dealing with people. The game itself wasn’t challenging though. It taught me what I didn’t want to be when I grew up that was for sure. If you don’t like something that much just get out of it, and don’t be forced to finish it because then you will not be happy in the end.

Everyone has different experiences even if they are doing the same thing as everyone else. We don’t all think alike so of course, we are going to have different experiences. For instance, going on a school trip at the end of my last year in grade school. It was very hands-on and active. We did things like going on a sixty-foot swing, although I didn’t go on the swing, I wanted to before I saw it. After I saw the swing I got nervous and decided that I was just going to watch. I did, however, climb the rock wall, which was a lot of excision for me, considering I hadn’t done much exercising that year. It was fun though.

On an entirely different level of experiences was high school. If you call being a loner in high school and experience, then I guess that is what I was. I was very focused on my studies more so than making friends. High school was different then grade school there was a lot more studying involved. No breaks like you got in grade school just a lunch break. Trying to make friends, on the other hand, most of your friends you would have one or two classes with them a day so you would see them occasionally. For me I didn’t really feel the need to make friends, I was more focused on getting through school. I went up a level or at least that is what I called it when I went to high school and I was determined to work for it, rather than just getting handed the grade.

After high school when I went to college I focused on proving myself, to others. I wanted to prove to others that yes, I could do what I wanted and get through college. My goal was to go to college and have that experience. It was a difficult experience but I got through it, and I am doing what I went to college to do, not in so many ways but in my own way I am doing what I want in life.

Life has its challenges it is how we deal with them that makes us who we are today.

Challenge your limits

Challenges are just limits you have to get through

Life's challenges are just limits that we haven't experienced yet. That is why they are called challenges it is how we get through those challenges that make us who we are. Life's challenges can come at you at any time it is how you deal with them that makes them limitless and how you get through them that makes you limitless.

What do you think some challenges of life are?

      Hi louise, this is a hub so true and well done. This should be inspiring to future college students and even those presently in college. Keep up the good work.

      When I was younger I looked at life as a series of challenges. Now that I'm older I see like as a series of experiences and opportunities. Turns out a man can find wisdom in aging.
