Our ability to handle life’s challenges is a measure of our strength of character.
Other Les Brown quotes:
It's not over until I win.
You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.
Don't let the negativity given to you by the world dis-empower you. Instead give to yourself that which empowers you.
The gifts we are given in life require the best of us, not merely our best intentions.
You must think of failure and defeat as the spring boards to new achievements, and to the next level of accomplishment.
Just because Fate doesn't deal you the right cards, it doesn't mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential.
At the end of the day, it's important to know what really matters most in life... your sanity, your health, your family, and the ability to start anew.
Lions don't have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence and persistence. Those who work don't talk and those who talk don't work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy and activity on mastering and executing a plan.
Champions get up! When you're down to nothing, God is up to something! Champions get up! Focus your mind, pull yourself together. If you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on! You are a champion.
Things are not going to improve for you in life until you improve.
