I cant think of any better place to ask this.
I believe most of people here have overcome many obstacles to become what they are.
How do you keep yourself going when life gets tough?
What inspires you to overcome the difficulties?

This is an easy question, the tough events keep me going. Do not think of things as difficult, just as something you have to finish. I have no clue what you are refering to, so it is difficult to give any advice.

I don't usually overcome obstacles; I either ignore them or go around. :approve:

I tend to have conversations with myself.....Kind of makes me feel like Gollum, but it works for me.

Self{says I}, this really gonna be ugly, but you know you've seen things that were so much worse.
{self says} Yes, but it dosen't make it any easier, it never makes it easier.
{says I} But you've made it this far
{self says} Not because I wanted to, I HAD to.
{say I} Your right, you half to, there is no other choice.

I do that too, but it usually turns out slightly different

{I say} Geeze, not again.
{says self} It's a ***** ain't it.
{I say} So, how do we deal with this in the most constructive way?
{says self} Well, if we just keep our head down and work hard we'll get through, it'll be tough though.
{I say} Wanna just lie again?
{says self} I was hoping you'd say that.
{I say} Deal then.

As W.C. Fields said: "If at first you don't succeed, try try again. Then quit. No use being a damned fool about it."

The most important thing to maintain (whatever it is you're doing) is hope that you will accomplish it or get through. Try not to let it interfere with your happiness, and keep going no matter what new circumstance comes along.

I've always liked that quote from "A League of Their Own" by the manager, Jimmy Dugan (played by Tom Hanks),
- "It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great."
