Keep Pushing Yourself Until You Reach Your Ultimate

From one strong woman to another: be reminded of your capabilities and embrace the challenges that come your way.

Life is a road that you drive on, with your goals serving as your destinations. And like an actual road, the condition of the path varies from time to time. Sometimes the path can be smooth and paved; other times it can have roadblocks, potholes, and rocky segments. During the times in your life when all you’re faced with seems to be nothing but problems and struggles, you may think it would be easier to give up. But for a strong woman like you, that’s not really an option.

Strong women like you find ways to face challenges head on, even when you feel helpless. For this, you only need to be reminded of your destination, and push through to be at your ultimate. Be motivated to carry on the road you’re at and remind yourself of your own capabilities with these inspirational quotes and true stories of strength from admirable women who have reached their ultimate in the face of difficulties.

No matter how many times you felt like you lost, you must never let it get inside your head and never let your losses define you. Sometimes, it’s when you get through your losses that you find your strength, and serve as your own reminder that if you got through that struggle, you can get through anything.

I remember the day I decided to hop on board the GuavaPass train. I was still part of the first ever trainer roster of Nike NTC during that time and in between hosting and modeling jobs. I had a lot of fears and was skeptical if the Manila Market was ready for this tech-product. But I had a fire in me and a feeling in my gut that THIS was going to change the fitness industry and lower the barrier for newbies in fitness everywhere. I decided to make this my passion — 3 years later, and the Guava bug is real. HEALTH IS WEALTH and I feel so fortunate to be able to help Filipinos achieve their fitness goals through @guavapassmnl 👊💪 When you feel passionate about something, take the plunge. After all, no guts, no glory. This is me at my ultimate. #100UltimateWomen #ThisIsMyUltimate @creamsilkph

Entrepreneurship is very glamorized these days. But there are a lot of truths hardly anyone talks about—the wear & tear of 24/7 work, the pressure of keeping up, things you wish you were warned about or knew from the start, the sacrifices made at the expense of personal time, being in circumstances that show who has maintained integrity or lost it. . If you’re feeling under pressure, embrace it, let it refine you. Let it help you become the greatest version of you. It’s the pressure and challenges in life that help us shine and grow into something beautiful and valuable. The toughest, most beautiful stone on earth is produced under pressure—once a diamond, always remember you’re unbreakable. . #ThisIsMyUltimate #100UltimateWomen
