I had faced a challenge in my office where my colleagues had said me not to work on "mobile number portability" because we can't achieve monthly target in this process but whereas a fresher I took a challenge and I beat my seniors to achieve my monthly target and I were awarded for that achievement. By facing challenges we can create an experience.

I always turn it into a positive. Normally saying I used to be very afraid of public speaking that by forming the debating society and regularly speaking in front of large groups of people, as well as meeting new people on a regular basis, I was able to overcome this fear and I am now much more confident.

Losing weight is the toughest challenge that I have ever faced. Self-studying and depriving myself of food I want to eat is torture but I managed to overcome it. I lost 30 lbs. So in every challenge, there is a reward so you just need to stay positive and never give up.

When I had to leave a friend house in the middle of the night and had no money or nowhere to sleep and still keep myself strong and positive until one of my aunts allowed me to stay at her place and she didn't even talk to my family. "Everything can be possible if we just keep ourselves positive in any situation".

The toughest challenge that has and still is, is English. I get it some people may say, "what are you serious, English?" Yes, believe it or not, there's just something that doesn't stick in my head. I get math, science, and history. I believe I just get my mind worked up with the new style of how teachers or professors work their levels of teaching. But not everybody is going to learn it the same way. I could try but it might take a while and keep going for it. Failing English made me not regret but to keep pushing myself into doing what I know I'm capable of doing. If that one person gets all A's, I can too. I just need to work a lot/little extra to be the next A student. Hard work and trying it all that matters. No need to be straight on with it or "perfect" as some say but trying is what counts the most, to me.

The problem I've ever faced is today when I have a great misunderstanding between me and my dad.

I use to manage our business before my father comes. But unfortunately, I've had a stomach ache which made me to delayed in going to work. Suddenly, my father called me which I've no knowledge of, I just saw a missed call and this led my father into acrimony. As a result, I just finished serving punishment. But happily, we already work things out.

In my schooling, I got very fewer marks that's why people blames me. After that, I take it as a challenge and worked hard later became the topper of the class then the same people came to me for clarifying doubts.

That is why success changes haters into lovers.

As a fresh graduate, the greatest challenge for me was when I was on my JOB TRAINING, one of my superior makes my self-esteem down even how I tried my best. So Then I'll take it as a challenge for me to prove to her that I can give all my full efforts and sincerity to my works. And I'm thankful to her because of that I've learned even how hard the situation is just never to give up always think in a positive way to have a positive result and also never forget to pray that to god that all trials come in our life.

I remember my difficult challenge as I am working in a restaurant as a Fnb supervisor, It was the morning breakfast going on in one of the restaurants in my hotel.

A guest sitting just near the side station as one the server in restaurants slipped on the floor carries coffee which spills on the guest shirt, guest was really angry as he had a meeting for the day, I proactively approach to the guest and immediately called to the reception for a room key to quickly change for him as he checked out already, and sent his shirt to express laundry but stain was hard to remove, I check with my manager and ask some money for buying a new finest fabric shirt for him from nearby mall, finally got his size and gave him new shirt.

Finally guest was happy and my efforts and initiatives appreciated with my manager.

To do those things that I never thought to do. I even never thought about that I can do any simple very simple job, and that's all without any reference and that is in my hometown. Yeah! Really. But from 2014 I did one by one 5 jobs, and now I am typing this because now I understood that the toughest part for me is TO STAY ON THAT JOB. That I'm still trying!

There are many challenges (I don't know if it's tough or not) I've faced and many failures I've tasted. I can't describe everything here. The one quote that pushes me is that failure is not the worst part, not yet tried is. I don't know English better to write something I've felt here, but I know one thing, well, I've tried.

Lovely said: (Jul 22, 2016)  
The toughest challenge I have ever faced is speaking in English as my communication skills are not good. But I overcome my this fear by working on it every day. Nowadays many people's hesitate in speaking English but they very well know this language as we write & understand what others speak in this language very well. So if we fight against our own fear & work on it. Then no one can stop us achieving our dreams.

Comments:

Karen : I so totally agree with you; I fear that I won't be able to be fluent enough or what next will I say. There is no other way but to, practice it.

The challenged I have faced in my life is in education when I am in intermediate my qualification is ME. C but I don't like maths but my father forcibly joined me in that group from that day onwards for a couple of years I faced a lot of problems to upgrade myself. But with this subject, I was demotivated a lot that I will never get a chance to explore myself but now I am motivated that everyone will have their own that will be revealed at some time and my talent is revealed at present.

I had worked for myself for so many years that I found it very hard to acclimate to a team environment in a company setting. I found it difficult to follow blanket policies that seemed out of date or almost insane. I had a hard time being stuck in an environment with "that one person" you did not click with socially.

To solve this, I literally had to research social behavior and begin looking for the positive in each situation. I had to practice patients and put forth deliberate understanding of other perspectives.
