Rise Up… To The Challenge!
Life is full of challenges. But it’s how we respond to them that differentiates us. It doesn’t matter how big or how small the challenge that presents itself is, the true test of a person’s character ultimately comes down to how they react to it.
I’ve got several challenges that I’m facing presently. Some provide opportunity, some entail risks and some will test me like never before. Some of these I’m going to be tackling on my own and some of these I’m not afraid to ask for help with. But I know that when I prevail I’ll be stronger because of it.
It doesn’t matter if you’re challenge is unjamming the photocopier, getting a mate through a rough patch or solving a family crisis, each of these tests will reveal your true character to others. Those who rise up to the challenge know the feeling that you get inside when you look back with pride at what you have overcome. Savor that moment and if someone asks for help then help them rise up to the challenge as the feeling is just as great!

We have a great article about how businesses require challenge and competition to grow, which ties right into your idea.
