Why do we challenge ourselves?
by Coach Donald
I sometimes wonder the point of participating in any sort of challenge really is.
One of the most sensible explanations I’ve ever come across has been from Victor Frankl who explains how being an idealist and aiming for something really great helps you become who you CAN be. To me, this is the true essence of any challenge. One of my favorite sayings is…
“If we take Man/Woman as he/she IS, we make them WORSE, but if we take Man/Woman as he/she SHOULD be, we make them capable of becoming what they CAN be”.
That my friends, is why we challenge ourselves; and I challenge you to come up with a better reason than that!
