“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ ”
~Muhammad Ali

We all make decisions — sometimes right and sometimes wrong — when things aren’t going well in our lives. The truth is it’s easy to make a decision when it seems like we’re in the valley rather than striving to reach the mountaintop where the view is clearer.

If you’re experiencing tough times, whether in school or struggling to make ends meet, don’t quit. Find the people and the best circumstances that can help you make a well-informed decision to keep pushing ahead, especially if a positive outcome is your ultimate goal.

Here’s what life looks like at a higher vantage point:

  • You are always moving towards something, not just away from something
  • The challenges you overcome leaves others with hope
  • You act and decide on positive information, not negative information
  • At the top, you are more likely to move from peak to peak, as opposed from the bottom and moving from valley to valley

Sure, today’s world might seem intimidating, but you can rest assured that at every stage of personal growth there will be an urge to give in and say, “I’ve had enough.” It’s the struggle to overcome diversity that keeps us moving forward in life.
