determination

Seize it, own it and hold on

“One of the most powerful lessons in life is to recognize that no one can give you power, and many people don’t want you to have it. You have to find the courage to seize it, own it and hold on” ~Shannon L. Alder~  

Overcoming obstacles

“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has has to overcome while trying to succeed” ~Brooker T. Washington~  

Focus and aim

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming. ~Author unknown~
