Happy Tuesday my tremendous talented tenacious goal setters! Welcome to the day you put life to the saying "No Pain, No Gain" Today's Daily Word is dedicated enduring your struggles in order to thrive! In today's society there is such a disdain for obstacles, struggle and pain that everyone tries to do everything in their power to avoid it not realizing that going through the pain is the best way to reach your dreams and aspirations! Not just for the sake of going through pain but for the lessons and endurance that is built by knowing for sure that absolutely nothing can stop you! Imagine the pain that the caterpillar goes through in order to be a butterfly! Or imagine the hell the coal had to endure in order to be that raw uncut diamond! Stop running away from the pain and run towards it! As Orson F. Whitney once said "No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called a warrior of life . . . and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our higher power." Again my good people.... NOTHING CAN STOP YOU BUT YOU!!!
"Do you have the talent?' is rarely the question. 'Do you have the guts to finish?' is the real question."
"It is easy to smile in the face of a challenge, when we believe in ourselves that we won't back down."
-Ellen J. Barrier
"Head up, heart open. To better days!"
"Every violent storm will eventually give way to sunshine; every dark night will finally fade into dawn."
"On a harsh expedition, there's no space for anyone who does not intend to finish."
"Winning isn't about finishing in first place. It isn't about beating the others. It is about overcoming yourself. Overcoming your body, your limitations, and your fears. Winning means surpassing yourself and turning your dreams into reality."
"No matter how much falls on us, we have to keep plowing ahead. That's the only way to keep the roads clear."
"Life isn't a lazy cruise on some endless, calm and temperate sea. Life is a raging ocean with swells and tidal waves that wreck and sink your boat. Life is a series of storms - overcast skies, fierce winds, and pelting rain. You were meant to be immersed in it all - first to float, then swim, and eventually to walk on water."
-Richelle E. Goodrich
