Obstacles are inevitable, but when you gain the right perspective, they become opportunities for

The first challenge you overcome is the most important because it’s the one you're least
prepared to handle, but each time you take one on, you come out more capable of handling
anything. Give yourself the mental courage it takes to struggle through it because, number one,
it's possible, and number two, after you do it once, it becomes easier. Once you’ve overcome
enough, you learn that turning obstacles into greater opportunities always leads to success.
