Overcoming Hardship Quotes by Sophocles

There is no success without hardship.

Do you feel the whole world is on top of you, you can’t see a way out, you just can’t move forward, and you need some inspiration.

I was looking at videos to put on this page and felt this was just the one, as it really opened up my eyes just how blessed we really can be.

Don’t think about the hardships that you are going through, think about what you have, have you got love, food, a roof over your head.

The greatest thing I have in my live at the moment, isn’t money or anything material it is the unconditional love of my husband, children and grandchildren.
And I know no matter what hardships or challenges I face that love will always get me through.

As the beginning of the video says.

Sometimes, we take our trials, our sufferings, our ordeals too seriously.

The upcoming message will make you think twice before complaining.

Again, let’s make the best out of what we have.

Be deliberate.

Be positive and Stay committed

In my book,Overcoming Life’s Challenges I candidly discuss how I overcame a troubled childhood, alcoholism, an eating disorder, bankruptcy and numerous health issues to find love, financial success and physical well-being. I talk about how I have taken the journey out of the darkness and into the light.

I never thought I would be able to drag myself out of the deep hole that I was in but I did, and never gave up until I did.

I truly believe you can too.
