Enjoying Challenges

  • By Swami Tejomayananda
  • •  Jan 28, 2020

What is this life? How should we really live it? Every day, without fail life comes with different flavours, pleasant, unpleasant, wonderful, boring, tiring, or fulfilling.

Life does not place choices before us. What you see is what you get. So, what can we do?

Take one of the two approaches:
1) Face life as it comes
2) Make life build your future

Most often challenges overpower and overwhelm us. Unable to deal with them gracefully, sometimes we stumble, often we grumble and we also crumble because we lose our poise. Our attitude is faulty. Challenges should stimulate us. Obstacles should challenge us. Difficulties should pull out the best in us.

In short, challenges should get our best performance.

For that, regardless of the situation, we must breeze through all challenges with a smile.
But there is more to facing challenges. We should not get exhausted, lose energy, lose humour, lose our smile and lose sight of our goal. Instead, our goal should so inspire us such that challenges become a fun activity of our journey to reach the goals. We don’t need to master the art of facing challenges. That is easy. 

We need to master the art of enjoying challenges.
