When is the best time to deal with your challenges?

It is not always easy to deal with your challenges but they are a very important part of life. If you wake u one day and have no challenges, nothing pushing you out of your comfort zone then you might just be dead. Get on your knees and pray for challenges to come.

Why?

When you deal with your challenges it grows you. They do not make you less, they make you more. After you have dealt with a challenge then you have the knowledge to deal with that challenge again. This means the next time it comes along you can handle it in a bigger form.

However, you need to deal with your challenges in a timely fashion otherwise they will grow until they become so big that they overwhelm you and possibly destroy you and bring everything that you ever built down.

It was a philosopher who said: “The best place to cross a river is at its source”. If you go downstream you might be faced with massive rapids and a rushing river. The same applies to your challenges. The longer you wait to address them the bigger they will grow.

Step 1: Do it now

If you can, take action now. Move a meeting aside or make time to deal with it now.

Step 2: See, don’t forget it

See the challenge and acknowledge it. Keep an eye on it so that you are aware of just how big it is getting. This way you can deal with it before it becomes too much for you to handle.

Step 3: Plan it

If you are not taking action on it now then at least put a plan in place for when you are going to deal with it. Maybe tomorrow, next week or next month but at least you have set a time for when you will take action.
