Challenge yourself- Part I- Why should I challenge myself?


(A bike is good only when you use it for a good reason.)

A few quick answers:

1. Keep your brain happy: when you face a challenge, then you will use your brain. The more you use it, the ‘happier’ your brain becomes.

2. ‘Doping’ for your brain: after a physical challenge, your brain will release endorphins. This makes your brain happy (so you are happy too).

3. So so life is boring: you only live once, so why not make it awesome? If you will only go to Paris once in your life, then I bet you will do a great planning. Why not do the same thing to your life?

4. Test your limit: can you run 10K, half marathon or a full marathon? If you never try, you will never know your limit.

5. Keep a growth mindset: if you challenge yourself in own life, then it’s likely that you will challenge yourself at work. This growth mindset helps your career and your life!

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?


    1. Haha… Willie, yes pictures are good but inserting pics in texts also makes the whole thing even longer. Many people read blogs on smart phones and this is hard. Blogs are usually for text-lovers but I will try to have more pics. ^_<


  2. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.


  3. The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you happen to werent too busy searching for attention.


  4. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.


  5. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!


  6. I additionally believe that mesothelioma cancer is a uncommon form of most cancers that is normally found in these previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous cells form from the mesothelium, which is a protective lining which covers many of the body’s body organs. These cells commonly form in the lining of your lungs, tummy, or the sac that really encircles the heart. Thanks for revealing your ideas.
