Eleanor Roosevelt said:

“Doubt, fear of failure, rejection, lack of confidence in the face of unbelievable odds and defeat are five of the main reasons why human beings suffer. If we can summons the courageous faith deep in our hearts to challenge and overcome all of the obstacles and persevere until we accomplish our goals, we’ll win without a doubt. We can’t afford to fail nor can we allow ourselves to be defeated in our hearts or spirits no matter what or how difficult the challenge maybe. Let’s continue to fight to achieve a ultimate victory, go for broke and summons the confidence to win.”

“Life IS FULL of unexpected suffering. Even so, if you can live through that [ a difficult situation ] you can live through anything. You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” That’s exactly right. Struggling against great difficulty enables us to develop ourselves tremendously. We can call forth and manifest those abilities lying dormant within us. Difficulty can be a source of dynamic growth and positive progress.”
