Challenge yourself

Quote

I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong, but to feel strong… to measure yourself at least once.

Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

Challenges change you

Quote

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.

Haruki Murakami

Do not hide

Quote

Anyone can hide. Facing up to things, working through them, that’s what makes you strong.

Sarah Dessen

Keep your eyes on the road

Quote

Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.

E. Joseph Cossman

Do your best

Quote

A problem is a chance for you to do your best.

Duke Ellington

Be persistent

Quote

It’s okay to be discouraged. It’s not okay to quit. To know you want to quit but to plant your feet and keep inching closer until you take the impenetrable fortress you’ve decided to lay siege to in your own life – that’s persistence.

Ryan Holiday

Finish the task!

Quote

I like getting to that point where it’s hard, and then, pushing harder.
