In life you have always to pass through obstacles and challenges in order to grow and become strong for other challenges still to come.Life is about a lot of challenges and anyone has to overcome and develop its own experience of facts.

Challenges have to be there so that you can learn from mistakes, so that you can be stronger and so that you know your worth because you know the hardwork you've put in and challenges you've overcome to achieve success.

I agree that we need challenges in our lives to learn and grow from them! Sometimes they can be very difficult and be discouraging, but that's the moment where you make the choice to benefit from that experience and grow from it.

To succeed without a challenge is a rare gift, but not impossible. I think in general, challenges are a form of spiritual preparation that test your will and resolve. Some of the greatest triumphs come after tears, and it makes the accomplishment all the more rewarding because of the adversity you've overcome.

I don't believe in success without challenges, its never a walk in the park if the results are authentic. Everything good is worked out

Challenges are definitely needed for growth. Without them, how will we learn? For that matter, without them, how will life ever be interesting?

I think you definitely need challenges to grow as a person. Some of my favorite characteristics in myself have come enduring very personal trials.

Yes challenges are needed for growth and success. You can't learn new stuff if things aren't challenging.

Challenges are needed for growth and success. Challenges are obstacles to the next level, so when challenges are overcome, there is a victory.

Challenges always make someone stronger. We get new ideas, new perspectives, new ways of looking at things. It also makes life more interesting. Not stagnant

Challenges give us a chance to find who we truly are as people, I think. Strengths, weaknesses, our abilities to adapt and evolve. It broadens our minds, adds to personality and can be valuable. There are days I hate the 'challenges' thrown at me but I know they are what made me who I am today.
“We make choices everyday, some of them good, some of them bad. And - if we are strong enough - we live with the consequences.”

You grow stronger with every mistake. Learning is the key because without it, you can't change. You learn more by taking on challenges, and by overcoming them, you are brought closer to success.
