It’s just a regular day.

Maybe things are going great. Or at least OK. And you feel pretty good.

Then something happens.

You make a mistake. A setback slips out from around a corner and hits you between the eyes.

This week’s article is about those times. And about motivating you, recharging you and staying strong when you need to.

Here’s 74 of the most though-provoking, encouraging and helpful quotes on strength and making it through tough times from the last 2500 years.

Sydney J. Harris

The stress is rising. You’re starting to feel frustrated with situation you’re in. Or angry. Or maybe sad and like you just want to pack up and go home.

So this week I’d like to share 17 habits and strategies that have helped me to keep calm and to keep moving forward.
