Challenges Teach Us Survival

Challenges are simply opportunities to be all we can be. They are also great lessons in survival. I have always maintained that humans who are pampered — hence unchallenged– lose their ambition and skill to survive. So, I totally concur with Mr. Ullman that challenge IS the core and mainspring of all human activity.

Quote:

“Challenge is the core and the mainspring of all human activity. If there’s an ocean, we cross it; if there’s a disease, we cure it; if there’s a wrong, we right it; if there’s a record, we break it; and finally, if there’s a mountain, we climb it.”
~James Ramesy Ullman

We must be thankful for situations and circumstances that challenge and stretch us. We must  see these as opportunities to discover what we are made of; to test how far we can grow.

Without growing we atrophy, and atrophy is the opposite of survival.
