Pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity; while optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. No difficulties can discourage, no obstacles can disappointment, and no troubles can discourage the man who has acquired the art of being alive.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, the bad things that happen to us lead us

The difference between an opportunity and an obstacle is your attitude. Your faith has to be greater than your fear.

 down the road to some of the best things we could have ever dreamed of. Let us never lose hope because miracles happen every day. Life is full of challenges and obstacles. It is human nature that although many times we know we should not give up but we find it very hard to stay positive and optimistic. Words of encouragement that follows can help us relieve stress and boost our morale.

The ability to triumph always begins with us no matter who we are, or where we come from. We love the light for it shows us the way, yet we should endure the darkness because it shows us the stars. In our journey it doesnít matter how slow we go as long as we donít stop until we reach our destination.

The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity.

When we believe we can, we are already halfway there. The only person we are destined to become is the person we decide to be. The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. We should embrace uncertainty because some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives wonít have a title until much later.

I have learned that it is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves; that big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones; that fortune knocks but once, but misfortune has much more patience in coming back.

When we doubt our progress, regret our choices, or put down ourselves, we have to remind ourselves that we are doing  just fine; that  no matter what it looks like, we are doing the best  we can and we are getting better. We should encourage ourselves, support ourselves and celebrate every little thing about ourselves and let us not be discouraged. It is often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.

When one door closes we tend to stay there and we stare at this closed door full of regrets and sorrow. We do not realize that at the very moment this door closed another door opened for us.
