Until fairly recently, I believed that there are two types of people in this world. One, that takes challenges as they come in their stride, occasionally resolving issues as they come, but generally trying to evade the creation of issues. The other, evaded issues all together and was always content with the monotony in their lives. It was a few days ago, that I discovered the third kind, those that actively hunt for challenges and are fuelled by the constant desire to find the greatest challenge. I have, since then actually managed to find a coupke more people, hence realizing I was normal…possibly.

Some live the dream, some live to build the dream, and are satisfied in doing so, knowing the dire circumstances that one may face in the process and knowing that many mountains lay ahead,

I was discussing an opportunity with a friend, who asked if I thought I could do the task. I inadvertently blurted out “If I could do it, I would not do it”. A couple of moments silence followed, then after realizing what I had said and the liberation that I felt after saying it, I went on to explain the statement further. Bottom line being, if I knew how to to accomplish a certain task, it would hardly be a challenge. It is the search of the ultimate quest that keeps me going.

The past few days, I have been positioned (by some random reason) to contemplate on the beauty of this one word. Challenge. In our lives, everything is a challenge, to someone or the other, in some form or the other. Why do challenges appeal to us so much? Why is it beautiful to challenge the possible?

I believe in everything, for everything is possible…
