Why life challenges are good for you

How many times you felt really bad because you suddenly encountered a tough life challenge? I am sure this happened to you before.

We humans like stability and we all prefer to live a life that doesn't have tough challenges but do you know that your self esteem can be reduced if you didn't face such challenges?

And do you know that life challenges can be a source of growth and even happiness?

I know this might seem confusing so in order to get it all, read this post.

Why life challenges are a source of growth

Do you know how self confidence is built? When a person manages to learn something new or when he manages to solve a certain life problems he feels confident about himself.

Now the question that most people ask is: why learning certain skills never add to my self confidence and why learning other skills can boost my confidence?

The answer is simple, only the skills that you are greatly in need of or the ones that will help you solve your important life problems will increase your self confidence.

Here is an example taken from the Solid Self confidence program. Lets suppose that you had a shyness problem, in such a case learning football might add a little to your self confidence but learning how to approach strangers will add a great deal of confidence to your personality.

So what does all this has to do with life challenges?
Because a problem is only considered a life challenge when it affects an important area of your life solving it will certainly add a great deal of confidence to you.

If you managed to deal with that tough life challenge you will feel that you are really confident and that you are not beatable. (see also How to be strong in life)

Lack of life challenges and beliefs that wear out

Beliefs keep wearing out as the time passes because we always keep collecting new information. If you once succeeded or made a great achievement then after sometime you might start to believe that you only did it because you were lucky and not because you are really good.

If that situation persisted you might lose your self confidence on the medium or the long term. On the other hand, if you faced the life challenge and managed to deal with it you will renew your self confidence and you will reinforce your positive beliefs about yourself.

I was strong then i became weak

I get many mails from readers who tell me that they used to be strong then they became weak and lost their self confidence.

In most of these cases those people didn't deal with the new life challenges that they faced and as a result they lost their self confidence.

All what those people need to do to regain their self confidence is to face these life challenges.
