overcoming challenges quotes

In our daily life, problems invariably arise.  But problems themselves do not automatically cause suffering.  If we can directly address our problem and focus our energies on finding a solution, for instance, the problem can be transformed into a challenge.  If we throw into the mix, however, a feeling that our problem is ‘unfair,’ we add an additional ingredient that can become a powerful fuel in creating mental unrest and emotional suffering.  And now we not only have two problems instead of one, but that feeling of 'unfairness’ distracts us, consumes us, and robs us of the energy needed to solve the original problem.
—  Dalai Lama, The Art of Happiness
Let us remember that through any illness or difficult challenge, there is still much in life to be hopeful about and grateful for. We are infinitely more than our limitations or our afflictions!
—  Jeffrey R. Holland
Listen, it is gonna pass. What you’re born into sometimes is a massive challenge to overcome, but you can overcome, and you owe it to yourself to create a life for yourself where you can be happy. Create the next generation that has a happy and healthy home. So don’t let the challenge or the circumstance define you, let it strengthen you, and move on and create yourself.
—  Kerli

Every relationship needs an argument every now and then. Just to prove that it is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.

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.
