I've made a sentence:

I wouldn't grow in my career if I didn't continuosly ask myself for new challenges.

I tried to say that the fact I found a new challenge everytime I've done with the current one gave me opportunities to grow in my carrer. Does it sound OK?

  • Why did you use ask myself? The meaning is different from I found (in your explanation). It is quite different, but how about "...*task* myself with new challenges." Not just found them but also applied them to your experience.

While your sentence makes sense, it might be better if you said:

I wouldn't advance in my career if I didn't challenge myself.

Or if you're talking that you are currently challenging yourself you could say:

To advance in my career, I task myself with new challenges.

Switching the sentence around you could say:

I constantly challenge myself so I can move foward with my career goals.

  • Does this sound ok? I wouldn't advance in my career if I didn't chalange myself every time I've done with the current one? Jul 19, 2015 at 19:03
  • No, you're adding a lot to the sentence, try to keep it short and simple. @D.B

Try: "I am continually looking for new challenges."

    Challenge; Opportunities; Career; Continuously. Granted, English spelling is a bear, but four misspellings in one short post is three too many. Your next challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to figure out how to avoid misspellings.
