I still don't like talking and presenting in front of people, but I have learned to manage myself when I need to do it and I am not averse to it. Not shying away from opportunities to improve myself has helped me know and accept my limitations as well as find out how much more I can do. Diving head first into challenging situations is a great way of overcoming personal struggles. For me, putting myself in actual "sink or swim" situations works better than just telling myself to do better. Niall Doherty of Disrupting the Rabblement calls these things random acts of courage or challenges that are supposed to push you out of your comfort zone.
Anyway, so I signed up and I'll be posting my first book review some time in the middle of next month. I'll be hosting a book tour next week, but I won't be doing any book reviews just yet. I'll be publishing a guest post though and it will give you details about the book we're featuring. You will also find out how you can win Amazon Gift Cards and a Kindle Fire! Watch out for it!
So there. Aside from my 30 day challenges, I also have my little book review challenge this year.
What are your current personal challenges? Have you ever deliberately put yourself in "sink or swim" situations just so you could learn to survive?
