Quotes about Overcoming

Be inspired by these quotes about overcoming. We all face hard times, pain, adversity, fear, anxiety, obstacles, problems, or depression at one time or another in our lives. There is no one solution for each of these challenges, and every person's situation is different, but be encouraged by the words in these quotes to help you overcome whatever you are facing, today and in the future. Life can be tough at times, but never lose faith that you can prevail and overcome the issues you are facing.

The idea of overcoming is always fascinating to me, because few of us realize how much energy we have expended just to be here today. Maya Angelou

Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals.

He once said, "I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward."

Sometimes, challenges rear up out of nowhere to dash the best of plans, and some of these obstacles can be the final play. But, if you adopt the philosophy that every obstacle has a solution, then you can find your way through. And, just to be clear, it doesn't mean that solutions will be easy and it may mean that you will have to alter your game plan somewhat whether that is a time line, or a direction that you prefer. Sometimes, to accomplish what you want, you will need to be prepared to take the long way around because the preferred short cut is totally blocked.

Obstacles crossed are simply stepping stones onward. Nothing is ever accomplished without some sort of challenge or obstacles. How you view the challenges that you face will determine your success. If you view them with determination, in that, you will find a way around them then in most cases you will. A challenge or an obstacle could be looked at as simply a test to see if you have the "will" to overcome them. Or they can stop you in your tracks. It is all dependant on your attitude.
