I am sure you can say
(ex) face your challenges in life

Can you use "fight" in the following examples?

(1) Tom is fighting hard against his life challenges.

(2) Tom is fighting his life challenges hard.

Does "fight" work? Thanks.

(1) Tom is fighting hard against his life challenges.  This is OK; "struggling" might work better.

(2) Tom is fighting his life challenges hard.  This feels strange, but changing "hard" to "as hard as he can" would work.



"Face your challenges" can be used as an imperative sentence, but it's a rather weak one. We'd be more likely to say "Face up to your challenges."

In general, "to face a challenge" = "to be faced with a challenge" — it's a relationship, not an action.
