Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.
~ James 1:2-3, NLT

I have always argued that change becomes stressful and overwhelming only when you've lost any sense of the constancy of your life. You need firm ground to stand on. From there, you can deal with that change. ~Richard Nelson Bolles ~

Strive for progress, not perfection. ~ Sparkpeople thought of the day

When you fail, get up, dust yourself off and come right back, not only with a vengeance but also with a plan to win. ~Gaspari Nutrition ~

As always, I enjoy reading what others think from reading this small collection of thoughts and quotes and how they inspire or change your way of thinking or tackling your day.

    I always love to read new quotes or be reminded of ones I've heard. The Biblical one has always been one of my favorites when struggling. And also to strive for progress, not perfection. These are great!

    I agree with GOINGSTRONG, but I tend to have a mental block when it comes to this. I probably need a positive affirmation! I liked all of these and I enjoy the others I've seen around SparkPeople. Now I just need to make them more than words. :)

    I think that reading positive affirmations and inspirational sayings lifts us up and may not even realize it. I would rather fill my mind with positive thoughts rather than garbage... that is for sure!
