There’s this famous quote that can spark an interest to challenge yourself within you:
以下这些名言能够激发你挑战自我的兴趣:

“If something that you’re doing doesn’t challenge you, then it doesn’t change you.” Unknown
“如果你做的事情不能挑战你,那么它就无法改变你。” ——无名氏

Of course, since every one of us has room for improvement, this can also mean if you don’t change yourself, then you can’t be responsible for changing your situation in life. You can never see any improvement in your life if you stick to your comfort zone. We all need a healthy dose of normal stress in our lives, after all. We can only see what we’re really capable of if we make the effort to go over our pre-conceived limits. Don’t limit the challenges you encounter in life - challenge the limits that your “lizard brain” crafted instead:
当然,因为我们每个人都有进步的空间,所以这就意味着如果你不改变自己,那么你就没有为改变你生活的处境负责。如果你坚持呆在舒适的被窝里,你就无法到生活中的任何改善。我们都需要在我们的生活中添加一些健康剂量的压力,毕竟,我们只有努力跨越事先设想的限制才能看到我们真正的实力。不要限制你在生活中遇到的挑战——挑战极限而不是制作你的“蜥蜴脑”:

1. Learn a new language.
学习一门新的语言

Hangul, Nihonggo, French, Filipino, Mandarin, Spanish: these are just some of the languages you can discover as you strive to challenge yourself. Learning a new language isn’t just another way to pad your resume; if you really get into it, you can even use this skill to tutor on the side and earn extra cash.

韩语,日语,法语,菲律宾语,普通话,西班牙语:这些只是一些你能找出来努力挑战自己的语言。学习一门新的语言不只是另一种丰富你简历的方法;如果你真的学会它,你甚至可以用这项技能兼职做家教,赚点外快。

2. Figure out what you’re scared of – and do it for one week consistently.
找出你害怕的是什么——连续做这个事情一个星期

If you’re in sales, and you’re scared of talking to people personally or over the phone, then you have a problem. You can’t just relate with your clients online, can you? Now, instead of crippling in fear and automatically thinking you’ll fail, spend at least five minutes a day to pick up the phone and make a call to a prospect. Yes, it’s scary. Yes, you may embarrass yourself. And yes, someone may hang up on you. But don’t stop on the first try just yet! You’ll get the hang of it eventually. After a while, you can look at fear in the eyes and say, “Go on, I’m not scared!”

如果你在做销售工作,你害怕当面谈话或是打电话,那么你有问题了。你不能只和你的客户线上交流,是吗?现在一天花至少五分钟的时间拿起电话,打电话给你的上帝,而不是把自己高主宰恐惧的围墙之中,自我感觉你会失败。是的,这是恐惧,是的,你可能会让自己尴尬。是的,某个人可能会挂断你的电话,但是不要停止正要开始的第一次尝试!最终你会驾轻就熟的,一段时间过后,你会看到眼中的恐惧然后说,“加油,我不害怕!”

 3. Take a class for a hobby you’ve been wanting to pursue.
参加兴趣班

Make sure this hobby is not linked to your career; you have to relax and de-stress while performing this. Some examples might be cooking, sewing, painting and graphic designing online.
确保这个兴趣跟你的职业无关;当你在做这个的时候你不知不觉就会放松和减压。有一些例子可能像是烹饪,缝纫,绘画,在线平面设计。

Aside from helping you challenge yourself now, taking a class for your hobby can also give you extra income if you learn how to monetize it. (You get plus points if you take the class with a loved one. This way, you combine bonding, boosting your income and challenging yourself.)
除了现在能够帮你挑战自己以外,如果你学会怎么用它赚钱,参加兴趣班也能够给你带来额外的收入(如果你能给你的爱人上课会为自己加分(take the class with 是同那个人一起上课还是给他上课,有点疑惑),你把它同你的生活结合起来,增加收入,挑战你自己。)
