Imagine a life without any challenges what so ever.
When challenges are all around us and they’re the only things we see, a life completely free of them is a welcomed thought. Anyone in their right mind would want them completely gone if they had a choice.
But imagine a life without any challenge. To be clear, a whole entire life without them. Not just from now on, but from birth on. Not just minus some of them, but all of them.
Kind of boring, right?
Suddenly, with this scenario, it occurs to us that we would have very little growth or learning in life. Our intellectual and emotional development would be stagnated. Not to mention, it would be much more difficult to sympathize with others in their challenges. Moreover, challenges bring about change. And meaningful change often comes with a meaningful challenge.
Yes, challenges suck. But when we’re forced to face them, this quote, by Joshua J. Marine, forces us to view them in a more positive light.
