Conquering Obstacles

“Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning
Of wisdom.”

   You have faced the greatest challenges in your life and you have been knocked down time after time after time.  You are scared, tired and hurt to stand back up and fight again fearing that you will be knocked down once again. But this your defining moment, the moment where you will choose if the obstacle will overcome you or you will overcome the obstacle. As hard as it is or as hard as it gets, stand right back up and keep moving forward. With each failure, you are just a little bit closer to the greatest victory of all. Your obstacle will build your character and form your legacy. When you want something, you go get it and fight for it. Do not be afraid of failure because you cannot always win, but failing does not make you a failure. It simply means that you have to try a little bit harder, fight a little stronger, and stand a little higher.
  Do not live through life being a victim of fear. You and only you have created fear within yourself and you can destroy it. Learn from your failures, and strive for the best that you could be. Fight your way back into the light and represent possibility. Show the world that success is possible even though you have been knocked down so many times. Do not make excuses when pain is afflicting you, you cannot afford the excuses because everyday is a battle and every battle needs its warrior.
You are a warrior.
You are a fighter.
You are not a quitter.
  Separate yourself from others who do not believe in you and don’t venture to please them. Others do not know what your aspirations and your dreams are, and some people will try to stop you from fulfilling your dreams. Start investing time in yourself. Spend time with yourself and know what you want to become; understand what is best for you.  People will wait to watch you fall and fail to reach the top, but they do not know the power inside of you. They do not know what you’ve become and what you are capable of.  You’ve given those people everything, but you do not owe them anything. You are better than they will ever be; you are the one.
  Life is a beautiful adventure worth fighting for, even though it can be nasty and cruel at times but there will always be beauty in it. You have to believe that something different and wonderful will replace pain and suffering. You have to believe that happiness exists somewhere and is waiting for you to go grab it.  You have to believe that you can, you will, and you must.
  Success is not about luck; it is about staying determined, focused and decisive. It is also about making up your mind and telling yourself that you are not going to give up. Make a choice and decide on who is the person you want to be.  You might not be the brightest, fastest or strongest but you are who you are meant to be. And it is not over until you win.
You are unstoppable.
