I love this quote from the legendary Oprah Winfrey! I hope using this as a #MondayMotivation quote gives you encouragement and a push to get through this week.
When I was younger, I never saw my challenges as “gifts.” I saw them as annoying obstacles to what I wanted. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized just how much they taught me. They forced me to step away from what I knew, and find new processes, skills, and perseverance to power through. Like Oprah shares in this quote, I had to find a new way to stand. I still do when new challenges arise.
Obstacles to the life we desire or the goals we have are inevitable. I know you know that. But, instead of always looking at them as hindrances, consider what you may have to change and how you can adapt. Consider how they can help you. Think about how you can come out better because you went through it. Find your new balance, and press on.
