Resolutions and Challenges
We talked about resolutions in this weeks assembly and how we needed to set personal targets. These targets can help us to do something that we have wanted to do for a while or can be about improving an area of our life or work.
In school, setting targets is something we can do every day. Something that we may find challenging one day we may master the next. There are many reasons to challenge yourself. Here are a few:
1. Grow as an individual
It all starts with you. Any challenges will help you grow as a person. Engage in self-reflection, learn who you are by writing, work on being more kind, honest, considerate, spontaneous, spiritual, etc.
2. Attain awareness, knowledge and education
Not expanding your mind is a waste of life. A complacent, inactive mind is a sad thing. Make your mantra “I must seek awareness” and your universe will grow and grow. The more we know the more we realise how little we actually understand. It’s inherently challenging and exciting! With the Internet, the all-time greatest library of knowledge is at your fingertips. Be curious and seek the truth about whatever interests you.
3.Â Become a better friend or partner
Are you the best friend you can be? Do you listen enough? Do you reach out to your friends to show them you care? Being a good friend is real work and requires conscious, consistent effort. Challenging yourself to become a better friend will unquestionably make your life (and your friends lives) more fulfilling.
4. Seek inspiration and be more creative
All great artists eventually learn one golden rule: you must SEEK inspiration. Challenging yourself to find ways to become inspired is a must.
5. Gain new experiences and have more fun
Why not challenge ourselves to try new things? By dong so you’ll meet new people, learn new things, have more fun and grow as an individual.
6. Achieve happiness and peace
Happiness and peace are usually the end results of successful challenges, but they can be challenges all on their own. Why not challenge yourself to be more happy and find more peace? This will help you better understand exactly what it is you need to attain these two prized life goals.
