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.

shifted from your goals.

Obstacles, when viewed in a positive light, are simply stepping-stones on
the journey to success. When you think of famous people who could have been stopped in their tracks, there are many examples. But one that always stands out for me is Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb;
obstacles became the vehicle to keep trying. He once said, "I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward."

be totally honest. Give yourself an immediate anxiety fix - and add this
sanctity into your life daily.
Byron Pulsifer, Anxiety To Be Overcome

Motivational Poems |

day after day after terrible day.
By cultivating gratitude you eventually expand your internal sense of
what is possible, regardless of seeming obstacles and challenges you
Veronica Smith, Loving Yourself
No problem is insurmountable. With a little courage, teamwork and
determination a person can overcome anything.
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.
Byron Pulsifer, An Obstacle Is Born
