"What seems to be standing in your way is not really standing in your way. It's pointing the way. What looks like it's holding you back is not really holding you back. It's building your determination to move forward.
The mountain is steep and treacherous, yet it gives you a pathway to get to the top. The work is challenging and complicated, and yet it gives you a way to create achievement.
Don't you dare despair when things get tough. Rejoice in knowing that the reason you're encountering so much resistance is because you're moving so powerfully ahead.
Look in the direction from where the resistance is coming. That's where value lives.
Feel your determination as it grows stronger each time you push forward. Now you have what it takes to bring great things to life."
-- Ralph Marston
Also, this makes me happy:
Because on sucky days we all need to be reminded of the nice things in life that keep us going and cultivate gratitude.
