... and a little positive educational psychology

  • What do you like about challenges and difficulties? 
  • What do you get out of them?

One of the qualities of people who learn, grow and develop a lot is that they tend to seek out challenges. That's because they realise that challenge is benefitting them. It's causing them to grow. They're becoming more capable. This describes what is known as a growth mindset. We all have both a fixed and a growth mindset. Questions like these can foster a greater tendency toward the more desirable latter.
