Ralph Waldo Emerson

Difficulties are things that show a person what they are.


Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.

Og Mandino

Hardship and opposition are the native soil of manhood and self-reliance.

Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today.

The very greatest things -- great thoughts, discoveries, inventions -- have usually been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow, and at length established with difficulty.

Samuel Smiles

Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way. For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. The greatest mistake is giving up.


It is a good rule to face difficulties at the time they arise and not allow them to increase unacknowledged.

Edward W. Ziegler
