Frey Freyday-Adversity

(Frey Freyday is simply a bunch of inspirational, motivational and other quotes meant to make you think, reflect, smile, even laugh a bit. Hopefully helpful, useful stuff..)

The perfection of your every “issue” is beyond human comprehension. Don’t be fooled. You’ve made no mistakes. The territory behind you and the challenges at hand were precisely crafted to deliver the wisdom and insights that’ll make possible the most joyful time of your life, so far. You didn’t come here to face hurdle after hurdle after hurdle. It’s not as if by mastering your issues today, more issues will be added tomorrow. That only happens when you deny them today. Master your issues, today, and be free. Get through what you must get through, today. Understand what troubles you, today. Do what you can, today. And all the rest will be made easy. So little can yield so much. A new perspective, an admission, a surrender to truth – however painful – changes everything. You are so deserving of everything you now want…The Universe (www.tut.com)

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

I haven’t always acted or reacted in a way that made me proud, but I didn’t make that same mistake twice, and I think that’s what I love about adversity is that it always reminds me of what’s really valuable in life.-Sandra Bullock

Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful.-Zig Ziglar
