Nobody chooses to add problems to their lives.
Problems are undesirable, inconvenient, and frustrating to deal with. When possible, we try our best to ignore them. If not, we learn to tolerate them. And if that doesn’t work, we finally surrender to resolving them.
Challenges, on the other hand, are a choice. They’re an invitation for us to rise to the occasion. An opportunity to prove our worth. A character-defining moment.
In storytelling, challenges are simply problems waiting to be overcome.
In real life, the difference between a challenge and a problem is our mindset.
