Why a challenge may be exactly what you need


Life is full of challenges, whether we like them or not. The questions we want to consider in this edition are guaranteed to evoke different responses from our readers; should we do all we can to avoid challenges, should we simply get on with them when they pop up or we have no choice, or should we perhaps even actively seek them out? Many people do find it difficult to cope with the change and transition that often goes hand-in-hand with rising to meet a challenge. It can certainly be a stressful time – but challenges can be mastered and they also present a great opportunity for learning and personal development.

Our tips are designed to enable you to take a positive perspective - we hope you enjoy them and find them useful in mastering your own challenges. 


"Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new."

Aiming for the roof of Africa


In August 2015, Maureen (The Training Box founder) and her daughter Ricarda will take on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
