I know that easy thing you can do yourself but for difficult ones, you need motivation. I am here with this article to help you. I will tell you the benefits of doing difficult things in life which will surely fire you up.
After all, you’re not going to get the easy path always. You’ll have to encounter something that is beyond your limits. So it is better you accept this fact and motivate yourself for the same. It depends on you whether you step back and achieve nothing or jump into it and be the winner. So here we go:
(1) Development of Willpower
Willpower is your ability to continue something even after you feel the urge to quit.
Running for 1 km is your normal capacity. And you get tired after 1.5 km. Now the running you do after 1.5 km actually counts and builds your stamina.
Difficult things put your willpower to the test. And the more you push yourself beyond your limits the more you develop the ability of the same.
(2) Development of Courage
Courage is the ability to do something in spite of fear. Very often people are afraid of failure, at their goals, which are very difficult.
The most powerful way to conquer your fears is to face them. And after you do something which you fear, you develop the courage to do it again. After a few more tries your fear will vanish.
I drowned in water when I was a kid and my cousin saved me. After that day, I developed a kind of phobia so I never went to swimming pools or any deep water bodies.
But recently I decided to overcome my fear and jumped from 10 feet in the swimming pool’s deepest area, my same cousin was there again to save me. It may be an easy task for you but not for me. It was the most fearful thing I’ve ever done in my life. I still don’t know how to swim but now I have the courage to do it again.
(3) Feeling of Self-Confidence
After you did something difficult, whether you failed or succeeded, your confidence boosts up. You start believing in your ability to do the work successfully. And without confidence chances that you’ll make it are very low.
Even failing after doing a difficult thing gives you more confidence than succeeding at something very easy.
(4) That Brilliant Feeling of Happiness, Enthusiasm, and Satisfaction
Doing, again and again, the easy things bores me and sucks out all the enthusiasm. Isn’t it with you? Until we don’t do something which challenges us, we don’t get satisfied and feel happy about it.
How do you feel after easily winning a 100 m race? What about when you put every ounce of your effort and win by just a fraction of a second?
(5) You Create a Successful Life for Yourself
If you really want to have that brilliant and extraordinary life, keep in mind that you’ve to set high goals. High goals aren’t easy to achieve. You know that.
That life is waiting for you, my friend, but you have to cross the gap between you and her.
The decision is yours whether you want to stay on safe and easy side or take the leap and make your dreams come true.
And it is the tendency of the man that his dreams are always higher than what he can normally achieve in his daily life. I guess you know what I mean.
(6) You Motivate and Inspire Other People
There is a group of soldiers in a plane learning parachuting. It is their first jump. All are feeling the fear but no one is willing to make the first move.
But one among them courageously does the most difficult task of jumping first of all. And then, as you can imagine, others start jumping one after another because they get motivated by their fellow.
You have to do the same in your life too. A lot of people want to do a certain thing but nobody starts. Why not you become the person making the first move? And you’ll see once you start others will also do the same.
(7) You attract other people towards yourself like you’re a magnet
It is human tendency and nature that we are attracted to a person who does what we don’t have the courage or ability to do.
Why do you get attracted towards those powerful people like businessmen, actors, musicians, singers, stuntmen and other celebrities?
It is because they have done the most difficult things to reach where they are today, which others don’t dare to do.
(8) Development of Talents and Skills
If you want to develop some kind of skills others normally don’t have, then you have put your mental faculties to the hard effort so that they can grow.
It takes the effort to be a better writer, sportsperson, singer, musician or anyone you want to become. You can’t escape that. There are no shortcuts.
So how are you feeling now, ready to do something challenging?
