For me, challenges is important to us and it would be part of the whole process in order to achieve success. Because challenges builds your character. You cannot achieve every goal without challenges because it measures your knowledge, endurance and perseverance that every achievement requires.

I absolutely agree that we need challenges in our lives. Even for little things, such as the types of books we read. I try to commit to one or two each year (in addition to my GoodReads challenge) because it pushes me to work toward something, rather than waste away.

I also have several challenges and goals set aside for myself in the new year. I think it's important we try to challenge ourselves a little each day. For me, because of my bad health, I challenge myself to get up each morning and enjoy life; I challenge myself to spend some time reading and if I'm feeling up to it, going out and doing things.

There must be lows and disappointment in order to learn and appreciate the high points and success. Through the struggles we experience, we learn lessons, we adapt our approach, learn new techniques for dealing with situations, we grow, and our perspective changes. We appreciate things more and it can drive us to work harder.

Absolutely! Challenges are what defines who we are. Not actually the challenge itself, but how we choose to handle it. Whether we overcome it successfully or not and whether we maintain our integrity throughout, all serve to shape our character and the determine the person we become at the end of the day.

Challenges makes a persin stronger, wiser and it builds his or her self by different obstacles he or sha had been through. It molds every person into something. This makes us more mature in life through different challenges we encounter. This helps a person grow. Helps them realize that life needs challenges to feel what it's like to be living.
Successful people have been to several challenges. They will not be in their syccessful places if they weren't able to overcome several challenges.

I don't think it's possible to succeed without challenges. We all learn from our mistakes and from all the pain we experience. Going through these makes us stronger and wiser.

I agree completely. Challenges makes you more determined to do your best and coupled with focus, success rate is higher.

challenges are definitely important for growth and life experiences. i don't think there is anyone without them and that is why we have some very good authors who put those challenges and victories into good books for our enlightenment and enjoyment.

I think that if you are not challenged people may not reach their potential or even realize things could be different. Our challenges and failures make us know where we are going wrong. When we succeed it gives us a drive and want for a feeling of betterment and pride.
