  5. Challenges




Firstly, a warm welcome to all my recent subscribers from my new website: www.extraordinaryathlete.com. It has been both an exciting and challenging few weeks for me. Following an emergency trip back to Australia, I have now for the time being, packed up home in London and relocated back to Australia to support my father. The last few weeks has been action packed to say the least having packed up home and office, resigned from work, helped one of my athletes win a Gold Medal and launched a new book, as well as the big move back to Australia! However, I am the lucky one as I get to spend precious time with my Dad. My quotes this week will focus on challenges as no matter what challenges you may be faced with, when you put your head down and go for it, anything is possible.

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.
Bernice Johnson Reagon
The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. What reasons are holding you back?

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
Joshua J. Marine


Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.
Joseph Campbell 


Sometimes the great challenge of life is to decide what’s important and go for it.
Ann Quinn


A challenge is a gift. No matter what you do in life, or what sport you play, decide what you must do. Challenge yourself to be better. Utilise all your talents and energy to strive higher than your goals. Remember, anything is possible to those that truly want it with their heart and soul.

Have an awesome week.

Love from Ann in the land down under
