The Challenge Of Knowing When To Stop

The Challenge Of Knowing When To Stop

One of the things that can be most challenging for us as human beings is learning not to give an automatic response in situations that can represent a true challenge for our growth, due to how complex they can become.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking: all adverse situations are complex and very different, but I’m not referring to those unexpected situations that disrupt your life, but rather those in which we deliberately immerse ourselves because we want to achieve life goals: a university degree, some high-impact physical training, a job position… That which you so eagerly desire to achieve!

In those cases, it is necessary to trust in our talents to overcome what lies ahead, as well as to have the right attitude for it. Why? Because if we’ve gotten into it, it’s because our intuition tells us that we have the capacity to achieve it.

Obviously, changing your mind on many occasions is perfectly normal. However, we must accept that often, people abandon their projects due to their own discouragement rather than a lack of skills to reach that initial goal.

And I add something else: giving up on a project that you considered appropriate for you initially does not mean that you don’t have what it takes to achieve other goals in different scenarios. Stop asking yourself, “What mess have I gotten into?” and start exploring yourself with questions like, “What abilities and characteristics do I have to overcome this challenge?”

It’s uncomfortable situations that make us grow as individuals, and we don’t have to have all the answers to absolutely everything, or life would make no sense at all. So, give yourself permission to try and fail as many times as you deem necessary.

The important thing is that you know that, beyond the size of the personal challenge you’ve set for yourself, your attitude can become your greatest ally or your worst enemy. Dare to look beyond what’s in front of you; the tools to make it possible are within you.

In this way, you will not only be helping yourself, but with your actions, you will be inspiring others to work towards what they desire.

So, before abandoning the ship, stop! Analyze the scenario and your position in it. Surely, not everything is as murky as your pessimism wants you to believe.
