I faced a tight deadline in my last job, I need to complete more work than the other projects, that time I worked very hard to complete my work on time and reached my deadline safely.

My toughest challenge is working patience under work pressure.

Tough & easy is depends on our mindset. So when we think about challege is tough that time we face the toughest situation. During that time we think positively that time will never come the toughest challenge. So, I don't face the toughest challenge. Hear after also I will not face the toughest challenge. Everything will be our mindset.

One of the toughest challenge is I face and continue to face is living up to the expectations I set for myself. I put high goals infront of me and sometimes when things don't work out the way I want them to, it is tough to go forward. But I have never given up always have found a way to get the desired result. After I achieve one then I set another so it is a never-ending battle.

At that time I felt its tough to complete Tl's work as an executive. But I took it as a challenge and completed as per by TL's requirement. Finally, I promoted as TL.

The toughest challenge is working with patients under work pressure. Previously I was working in Chennai, in 2015 due to flood I was relocated to Bangalore for business continuity plan. At that time we had a lot of work like only 7 persons worked for the entire team and finally, we received appreciation and token of love from the client. 0

That was a really toughest challenge in my life.

Work in the political environment. In my previous company, Due to my hard working and full of dedication I got to work as Vice-HOD after 6 months of joining. But due to the political environment, they put me in shift after 3 months. In shifts also I had given the Highest Production. In shifts also peoples were playing politics not to provide material on time and breakdown to machine. Again, I proved myself that I can able to give you output in any situation. I thought this is the toughest challenge for me.

It was tough for me to technical term but the support I got from Technical coach and team was amazing. Never felt like technical would be so logical and Cool.

B.Suchitra Singh said: (Jul 19, 2017)  
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.

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.

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.
