Push back

When life pushes you down, push back! That’s what you’re here for. You’re capable, you’re creative, you’re full of life and energy. You have what it takes to move yourself forward around any obstacle. Don’t let anything stop you. Take strength from meeting the challenges, and move ahead.

The struggles you face are just what you need to fulfill your potential for greatness.

Think back over the past year. Consider the ways in which you’ve grown, the things you’ve learned, your accomplishments. Most of these probably came from overcoming some challenge or adversity which initially stood in your way.

A year from now, when you look back at today, you’ll see that the problem you’re so concerned with right now, was another valuable lesson waiting to be learned.

— Ralph Marston
