Eleanor Roosevelt


There are a lot of strong women to admire. And there are a lot of things to admire about strong women.

One of my favorites was a lady who looked a lot like someone’s grandmother in most of her public pictures. A rather unassuming figure without special good looks or special talents that were readily visible.  But, behind the scenes, she was the favorite adviser to one of the most influential men of her time.

There are a number of quotes attributed to her. Several directed toward women (but many also apply to men).  Many can be applied to anyone’s personal goals, including fitness.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”

“ I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday”

“ You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you stop to stare fear in the face……Do the thing you think you cannot do”

But my favorite:

“ Do something every day that scares you!”
