The toughest challenge that I faced in my career, was the customer who was so angry as the product didn't reach him on the time and date that was promised to him. He called up the office and I was the one who answered the call. As I said "Hello" he started yelling at me. Why? the product is not delivered to me as promised by your office I have been waiting for the product since morning, when I called 2 hours back they said in another 3 hours we will deliver it.

1st I listen calmly to the customer and listen carefully to what exactly he wants. Now when my turn came to talk at 1st I apologised to him for not been able to live up to his exceptions and tried to empathy with him and assured him that by the end of the day the product will be delivered to him. After completing the call I sat with my team I asked them what was the reason for not delivering it. They said the catalogue which was to be sent is not ready I sat with them and got the catalogue done. After that, I personally took the catalogue for the delivery and handed over to the client.

When I reached the client's place at first he was annoyed then after looking at the catalogue he was happy, to make him feel better I told him on next catalogue we are going to work on some discount for him.

Politics being played against me at office despite working with full dedication was the toughest challenge I faced in my previous company. I like to work with all people by maintaining a proper rapport and support and help as and when needed and do hard work and achieve or gain. But if there is cheap politics being played despite all the hard work it really becomes a big challenge as I have never been in it.

Sakshi said: (Apr 22, 2017)  
For me, toughest challenge was when I joined my new college for further studies and every one use to say that why I left my previous college as that was among the top university. Than I use to think that I have taken wrong decision in my life but than I started reading books and realized that it is our inner ability that makes an individual strong or weak and more talented.

While working on a project in a top MNC, I was asked to work on night shifts. It was not tough but with one week's training, it is really a tough job, because in that week you can barely grasp 10% of it. As we have to monitor certain jobs, on that day there were three issues and seven incidents, which I have to complete by the morning. At the same time, Clients are shooting emails and asking the status of the ongoing activity. As I was alone that day It was the toughest day of my life. Somehow I managed the client and solved those issues carefully.

Karessa said: (Jan 20, 2017)  
I think the hardest hardship that I have ever been through was when I was in sixth grade and put into foster care. I was in 4 different foster homes until I got to go back home. My favourite parent was my mom and of course, they wouldn't let me see her for like 4 or 5 months. Even after I got out I had to live with my dad for 2 months and could only see my mom for 2-3 hours every Monday and Thursday. I cried every day because I missed my mom and even thought of committing suicide but I did not because I knew my mom would miss me to much. I do not know if I have been through a hardship.

The toughest time of my life was when I had to leave my home after class 10 for higher study. I was living in a rented room. It was very difficult time for me. I cried daily for a month. Then I realised that crying is never going to help me with this situation, the only thing which can help me is accepting what it is as there was no alternative and focus on Why am I here.

The toughest challenge I've ever faced is the ongoing challenge of coping with the strong and diverse personalities of family, friends and work colleagues, while encouraging them to be the best they can be, while achieving goals; keeping peace; maintaining a sense of humour and not losing sight of who you are and your dreams and aspirations.

Every challenge is a challenge of tough but we should face it. The biggest and longest challenge that I have ever met is people speak good in front of us and bad at our behind. Lot of ego and misunderstanding I have met with the persons, when I was in the business last year with my dad.

My Biggest Challenge was waking up in 1990 in hospital at 30 with no memory of life before waking up in a hospital. Knowing I had brain damage and spinal injuries.

Been told 98% chance of never working again, never holding anything.

Now I've been South Pacific Manger for multiple companies, owned my own business. Run an online business and soon public speaking about the motivation to prove nothing is impossible.

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".

Coraline said: (Sep 23, 2016)  
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.
