We're all given circumstances in life to overcome. And, that's really the
beauty of life, isn't it? If it weren't for the obstacles we are given to beat,
there'd be no thrill of victory when we've conquered them and the ride
would be as dull as unbuttered toast.
Sandra Bell, Lunchtime Joy Magnet
When you have strong self-discipline you will be prepared to overcome
any kind of obstacles that you might encounter on your journey towards
creating good habits.
Ronald Valentino, Habits
Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series
of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles.
Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails
facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well.
Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it
longer than anyone else.
Brian Tracy Goals
If you try and overcome adversity alone, you can have a bad time of
it but if you turn to God as your first option, an option that gives you peace
and strength to help you see the situation as different, you have a hope
of getting through this problem.

Focused will is incredible. If you have a dream and you don't give up no
matter what obstacles come up, then life's problems will fall away and you
will get what you want. It happens. It works.
You can overcome anything if you don't bellyache.
Bernard M. Baruch
One of these commonalities is that each adversity can be viewed as a total
setback, or as an opportunity to overcome the problem. There really is no
other way to look at the issue. You either take the adversity square
on the chin and fold, or you take the hit, keep standing, and find a
way to move around the adversity.
Byron Pulsifer, Adversity and God
Positive self-talk can provide you with a short burst of motivation
that will help you push through obstacles and reach the next level.
Martin Meadows, Confidence
There is one truth in life that may strike you as a bit odd. And, that truth is
that all people, no matter who they are, have periods in their life
where obstacles, problems, or setbacks are present. There isn't a successful
person around who hasn't been in a deep valley looking up wondering
where the steps went to climb.
Successful people make unwavering commitment to overcome every fear
which might serve as an obstacle in their lives and prevent them from achieving

Some of us think that we are able to cope and deal with any kind of problems
or challenges that come our way only to find out that we cannot overcome
Others who do not think they can manage to beat whatever is troubling
them come out in flying colors and are much stronger after the ordeal than
One of the things that I have observed over time about people who fold
when the going gets tough is that they are usually the ones that think they
are able to handle everything alone.
They feel that they do not need a support group, a friend or a confidant
to assist them.
Byron Pulsifer, Do You Fold Friend
If we're ready to listen, the obstacles we face can be life's way of pushing
us in the right direction.
Worry and fear are closely tied to one another when it comes to overcoming
both. You may be afraid of driving a car, for example. So, how do you overcome this fear?
The best way is to do that which you fear the most - drive. If you have
never driven, then take action - take a driver's education program.
The essential component here is 'action'.
Nothing conquers fear better than action.
Byron Pulsifer, Worry Stone Worry

overcoming challenges come growth and strength.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Your Happily Ever After
Don't fear adversity. While it is discouraging and it can be draining,
look at it as an opportunity. Think of different ways to overcome the
adversity. How we respond to adversity will determine our success
and our happiness in life. May you find adversity in your life one
that will make you stronger, more determined, and allow your creativity
to find ways to overcome it for the better.
Catherine Pulsifer, Faced with Adversity Opportunity
Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions.
So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow
stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more
self-confident and more and more successful.
Mark Victor Hansen
If you believe in yourself then you will find a way no matter what obstacles
and challenges you face along the way. You will see these obstacles as
opportunities. If you look at an obstacle as an opportunity you will find
ways, you will use your creativity and find a solution that will solve the
obstacle. Sometimes, obstacles are actually gifts, as they make us look at
situations in a different way.
Catherine Pulsifer, Success Are You Determined Believe In Yourself
The pessimist spends all their time dragging every else down to their level of
despair whereas the optimist always pushes hard to make changes, to
find new and different ways to overcome obstacles, and to encourage
all those who wish and move towards creating a better world or a better life.
Byron Pulsifer, The Difference Between Pessimist And Optimist Changes
Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome
the obstacles that will invariably come your way.
Les Brown Motivational
One of the benefits of history is reading how other people both famous
and totally unknown have overcome tremendous challenges in their life.
These challenges, although particular to a person, or to a certain time in
the past, or occurring in a different country or culture all convey wisdom
in their short stories of perseverance.

he showed tremendous determination to overcome his challenge and
fulfill his desire to compose.

may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task, but you will
succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.

Review your goals twice every day in order to be focused on achieving them.
When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not
really such a big threat after all. We all need some form of deeply rooted,
powerful motivation -- it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can
live our dreams."
