15 Powerful Women Quotes on Overcoming Adversity and Challenges

We all have a mixture of successes and failures in our life. The road to success is not easy; we also have to face many adversities. We have been adapting essential components like hard work and sweat, patience and determination, and flexibility to achieve success and overcome failure over time. Overcoming our adversity helps us build resilience, confidence and the will to continue. Adversity often prevents many people from continuing their journey. Fear prevents many successes. These challenges of life can make people more creative and find new ways for their ultimate goal. Overcoming these adversities and facing apprehensions leads a person to his ultimate goal.

Every challenge we successfully conquer not only strengthens our will, but also our confidence, and therefore also strengthens our ability to face future obstacles.

So, the next time you find yourself standing in front of a huge mountain that feels impossible to climb – the same difficulty you see in your job, partner or business – then refer to these wise words and inspiration to help you find the way.

Here are some quotes by powerful women who have overcome challenges and adversities by themselves.
