The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are

there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.

Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t

want it badly enough.

– Randy Pausch


Throughout life you will face obstacles. Unexpected twists and turns will make the path you choose to walk a little more difficult. Those complications are not excuses to stop moving forward. You should treat each new challenge as an opportunity to show how motivated, invested, and determined you are. By persevering through problems and difficulties, you become a stronger and more successful person.

1. How do you feel when you overcome a challenge?
2. Do you persevere even if you get tired?
3. What makes you keep going?
