Detailed dream interpretation

If you were presented a challenge in your dream, then there is something in your life that you are anxious or excited about. The nature of the challenge in your dream may reveal the level of anxiety in your life. If the challenge seemed harmless or related to your interests and hobbies, it is a positive symbol for the challenges you complete every day. If the challenge seemed daunting, you are likely under stress.

If you challenged someone else to something in your dream, then you are not feeling challenged enough in the waking world. Everything seems to have lost excitement, and you are hoping to create some interest for yourself in the dream world. Challenging someone else to something in a dream also shows your own self-confidence.

If you accepted the challenge in your dream, then you are the kind of person who is not afraid to face your fears and stand up for what is right. You have a large amount of self-confidence, and this is helpful to you in the waking world. Whether it is a scary challenge or an easy challenge, you are ready to take on anything, and people admire this quality in you.

If you turned down the challenge in your dream, then you have a fear of judgment or failure in the waking world. You are sometimes unable to deal with the stress that comes to you in life, and you may be managing it in unhealthy ways. You must learn to accept that things will not always go your way.

If you won the challenge presented to you in your dream, then you are ready for a great success. There is something big going on in your life that you are well prepared for, and you are ready to take on all of the challenges that come to you in the waking world/

If you failed the challenge presented to you in your dream, then you are worried about an upcoming task in the waking world. Whether there is a big presentation coming up at your job or at school, or if you are handling a family crisis, you are afraid that you are the wrong person to take on the job. Be aware that there are some things you cannot prepare for, and no one can judge you for doing your best.

If you fought for the challenge in your dream, then there is extreme tension in your life. There is some conflict going on between you and somebody else that needs to be resolved. Physical violence is never a good sign in a dream, and the real-life issue should be resolved as soon as possible.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Family issues.
  • A fear of failure of judgment.
  • Learning from your mistakes.
  • Facing the daily challenges of life.
