Rising Above Quotations
There are two ways of meeting difficulties. You alter the difficulties or you alter yourself to meet them.
People can do whatever they want if they just set their heart to it, and just never give up, and just go out there and do it.
Success is not just the crowning moment, the spiking of the ball in the end zone or the raising of the flag on the summit. It is the whole process of reaching for a goal and, sometimes, it begins with failure.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have.
