MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY

Share

Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional - Roger Crawford


If discouragement, defeat, and negativity dominate the marriage, it is time to take stock. Circumstances can be challenging. Overcoming failure is not easy. Either spouse can feel like a miserable failure because of common life issues. The observant spouse can make a significant different by taking some simple but rewarding steps toward helping their partner through reassurance and encouragement. Sometimes a wife or husband just needs comfort.

Absolutely love the quote, and what you had to say is so true. Many times when life throws its challenges at us, sometimes the best thing we can do for our spouse is be that source of comfort and support. Sometimes this is better than always trying to solve the problem, which I have learned from personal experience.

I always try to motivate and encourage my husband to reach his full potential. He also supports and encourages me in everything I do. When I’m down he brings me back up just by listening and encouraging me to reach beyond my realm and go for it. There are times when I feel like he can be a little more supportive in some endeavors not realizing he is my biggest fan.

I've never been a Big Dreamer I've been a Big Doer! My husband was a bit of a Dreamer til I came into his life. He likes to tell people that I make him want the most of life. He keeps me grounded at times when I want to jump 2 steps instead of taking 1 step at a time. Me and Mr motivate and encourage 1 another.
