The encouraging thing is that every time you meet a situation, though you may think at the time it is an impossibility and you go through the tortures of the damned, once you have met it and lived through it you find that forever after you are freer than you ever were before.
If you can live through that, you can live through anything. You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face…
The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it. If you fail anywhere along the line, it will take away your confidence. You must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. -Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt led an inspirational life. She had many obstacles to overcome, and she showed great courage in doing so.
The secret to overcoming her personal challenges was to face her fears and not run from them. That’s not an easy task, but a goal worth pursuing.
