~Aristotle Tells It Like It Is~

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over self.”

~ Aristotle

What a great and true quote this is. There are many individuals that can run with the best of them. Anything you put in their way, other than their own personal desires, don’t stand a chance. But when they are confronted with a personal obstacle, it stops them in their tracks. It takes practice to understand yourself and time to get things right. When you run into an obstacle, think of it as a way to grow as a person. When you take your obstacles head on, the next time they are not as bad. Focus on the problem at hand and try to separate your emotions.
