Do you have things you need to do but would rather do things that are easier or more fun? You need to challenge yourself.

Welcome to another edition of Hospitality Property School.

I am your instructor, Gerry MacPherson and today I am going to talk about “The Importance of Challenging Yourself “.

.

.

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to get sidetracked?

.

You have a list of things you need to do but you find it is much easier to do something fun rather than the important mundane tasks that have to be done.

.

Unfortunately, this is how most of us operate. Some days we’re motivated to take up essential duties and finish them on time. Then there are days when we feel demotivated and spend our working day on tasks that are easy and not so important.

.

The main reason for this is a lack of resolve – the thing that keeps disturbing our workflow patterns.

.

The best way to overcome this is to challenge ourselves. This will help keep things on track, and putting off tasks a thing of the past.

.

.

Here are 7 reasons why we need to challenge ourselves.

.

  1. To be inspired

When we are challenged, we inspire ourselves. By confronting our challenges every day, we can see the result of our work consistently.

.

This will make a positive difference in our careers and in our lives.

 .

.

  1. To fulfil our short-term goals

When we are challenged regularly, it will make it easier to focus on our work and help let go of putting off the tasks that need to be done. Daily challenges encourage us to complete our short-term goals and will help influence how we tackle our long-term goals.

.

  1. To be organized

Challenges encourage us to finish our tasks on time. Routine helps us improve our work, especially when the going gets hard. By following an organized and planned lifestyle, we will find ourselves on the right track.

.

.

  1. To step closer to success

Challenges move us in the direction of massive success that may currently seem distant. When we are enthusiastic about finishing our goals every single day, we are slowly taking steps that are leading us to our larger idea of success.

.

.

  1. To make every day valuable

We realize the value of time only when we don’t have enough. Challenges every day forces us to do our daily tasks with the time given, making sure not a day is wasted..

Learning to manage the precious time given to us can make all the difference.

.

.

  1. To remind us of our objectives

There are times when we stop focusing on our objective. Challenging ourselves every day, we are constantly reminded of our objective and this drives us towards success.

.

Think of a challenge as a wake-up call for you to help turn your eyes back on the big prize.

.

.

  1. Motivates you to try harder

Every day is an opportunity to do better, and only when we challenge ourselves will we know our true potential.

.

More than anything challenges help us identify our positives and negatives, and teaches us to work more efficiently.

.

.

With these 7 reasons in mind, we want to challenge you.

.

We want to challenge you to the 6 Day Challenge.
