challenges

A Quote by Wayne Muller on loss, pain, challenges, and self-knowledge

When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open.  And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature.

A Quote by Sophia Loren on challenges, self-love, greatness, and perseverence

Getting ahead in a diffcult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.

A Quote by Dallin H. Oaks on thanks, hardships, adversity, trials, purpose, learn, grow, opposition, challenges, teaching, afflictions, and bless

"When we give thanks in all things, we see hardships and adversities in the context of the purpose of life... We are meant to learn and grow through opposition, through meeting our challenges, and through teaching others to do the same... the Lord will not only consecrate our afflictions for our gain, but He will use them to bless the lives of countless others."

Dallin Oaks

A Quote by Robin L Akawi on motivation, challenge, challenges, change, and life

NO CHALLENGE, NO CHANGE !  Forget the no pain no gain thing.  If it's pain, then STOP!  I made up the phrase 'no challenge no change' over 15 years ago when I realized it was not the pain that made one change, but the challenge that was overcome.  It started out with references to working out and then I realized I could apply that idea to every part of my life, including motherhood, relationships, school, work, etc.  I will continue to live by this phrase and hope to instill it in my daughter as well.  It has gotten me through so many hard times, including divorce, losing my mom 3 years ago, and while being in school for the last 7 years... getting closer to that PhD every semester.  There have been an insane amount of challenges I have dealt with in my life, so my goal is that the changes that result will in turn have an insane impact, not only on myself, but my daughter, and everyone I come into contact with.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on challenges and responsibility

Tackling challenges that are too big for you is what makes you grow as a human being. Why do you think this problem keeps coming up in your life, staring you in the face? Do you think you’re supposed to ignore it and hide from it and wait for someone else to solve it for you? If you notice it, you own it.

A Quote by Angela on attitude, soar, life, authenticity, and challenges

Throughout the years of your life you will face many challenges, remember that you can climb the highest mountain, drive through the roughest storm, soar across the bluest sky, or even sail across the roughest waters. It is only destined by your attitude where you will end up in life. The most important thing is don't let yourself get lost in the crowd.”

A Quote by Anne Dudley Bradstreet on relativity, seasons, adversity, challenges, and winter

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

A Quote by Jerry Porras on success, resiliency, and challenges

Extraordinary individuals take one step back and two steps forward with most every challenge—and sometimes two steps back to one step forward. They harvest useful lessons and knowledge from what doesn’t work, and they display a remarkable resiliency; and ability to bounce back from adversity.
