InSPIRITations: Bring it On
By Mitzi Reed

Have you ever struggled, felt like you failed, didn’t know how you were ever going to get through your latest challenge? All of us at one time or another have had challenges that seem at the time overwhelming. I have had my share of challenges. Looking back I am grateful for those challenges as they helped shaped me into who I am today.
How do you handle challenges that come your way? I love quotes and I am reminded of some of them when I am faced with challenges.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Each challenge that you overcome can give you strength, courage, confidence and a will to move through and forward. You learn from your challenges and you celebrate your successes.
A favorite quote of mine in the Rocky series is “But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
Athletes have many quotes about overcoming obstacles and fear. Michael Jordan stated, “If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them, everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” –Christopher Reeve
And Les Brown says that “wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.”
Each obstacle, each perceived failure is just a lesson that is here to teach us. Each time we move through the obstacle, we succeed just by having the courage to go through it.
Welcome and embrace the obstacle or challenge and don’t resist it. What you resist, persists. No matter what the result is, celebrate your accomplishment of going past the fear and learning from the challenge.
