An important topic in my life is Overcoming Obstacles.
In my Unstoppable Life Course, my guest Nick Vujicic shared from his heart, and from his experience of growing up with no arms and no legs, about facing our challenges so that we can all be overcomers.
Overcoming the challenges we face in life isn’t often easy, but it is worth the work. And we only need to take it one day at a time.
Here are some wise words that I hope will encourage you to be Unstoppable as you overcome the obstacles you face.
Overcoming makes us beautiful.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Our attitude helps us overcome.
“I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
– Charles Swindoll
We can overcome little by little.
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you’re doing the impossible.”
– St Francis of Assisi
Some days we overcome when we just keep going.
“Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
Overcoming builds character.
“Just as we develop our physical muscles through overcoming opposition – such as lifting weights – we develop our character muscles by overcoming challenges and adversity.”
– Stephen Covey
With God in our lives we can overcome, because He has overcome the world.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
– John 16:33 (NIV)
Life will constantly give us things to overcome, so we must be prepared. Surround yourself with the help you need, whether it’s encouragement in your faith, positive loving people, or visual writings and words of wisdom to see daily and remind you that…you CAN overcome!
