If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you

If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.

I don’t know whose quote this is (wish I did) but I heard it on a podcast this morning and it really resonated with me.

It made me think about how we often try to get different results without changing anything.

I know many people have big goals for 2016. By that I mean big goals for them. Whether it is around their eating, their fitness, their careers,  it doesn’t matter. What matters is that we all need to recognise that for us to achieve what we might have in mind, we need to change.

How do we change?

Often through grit and determination and habituating new ways of being. The other way we change is through challenge.

Challenges change us. Hopefully most often for the better.

Do you have any changes you would like to see that could be instigated through setting yourself up a challenge?
