Its good to remember that the tea kettle, although up to its neck in hot water, continues to sing. You should never let adversity get you down except on your knees. If you encounter difficulty, don't change your decision to go, just change the direction to get there. Sometimes adversity is what you need to be successful. The bigger the adversity, the bigger the victory. Don't get discouraged, everyone who got where he is, started where he was. Adversity causes some men to break, other men to break records. (William A. Ward) Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune, but great minds rise above them. (Washington Irving) In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. (Albert Einstein) Success is not to be measured by what you have reached but by what obstacles you had to overcome. (Booker T Washington) What really matters is what happens in us, not to us. I have never known anyone to achieve anything without overcoming adversity. (Lou Holtz) The more difficult the victory, the more happiness in winning. (Pele') Success is difficult, it requires enormous effort. Those who can work through the struggle becomes successful. (Jackie Joyner) Something constructive comes from every defeat. (Tom Landry)
You can't let problems lick you b/c they will always be there. (George Allen) Problems are the price of success. (Branch Rickey) In times of adversity, you don't have an obstacle to deal with, you have a choice to make. It's not the absence of problems that gives us peace, it's Gods presence with us in our problems. (Dale Ellington) The biggest struggles are from within. Adversity is another way to measure the greatness in people. (Lou Holtz) The difficulties and struggles of today is the price we must pay for the success and victory of tomorrow. Adversity is the ruler of the weak, but an instrument of the wise. Success in anything is always a bumpy, uphill road that leads to heights of greatness. The road to success is always under construction. You'll encounter potholes, detours, and delays. But you must keep your eye on the goal & keep moving forward. (Ed Temple) Fear keeps a lot of people from setting goals. Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain. Fear is interest paid on a debt you may not owe. FEAR- False Evidence Appearing Real. Don't cross bridges until you get to them. We spend our lives defeating ourselves crossing bridges we never get to. (Bob Bates) Unless you try to do something beyond what you already mastered, you will never grow. (Ronald Osborn) Do not let what you can not do interfere with what you can do. (John Wooden) The biggest lie we tell ourselves is "I'll do it later".
If you want an easy job seem mighty hard, just keep putting off doing it. The wise does at once what the fool does at last. Success comes to the man that does today what others put off till tomorrow. The things that comes to the man who waits, seldom turn out to be the things he's waited for. Procrastination on a decision may be a decision in itself.
