Fertility testing and treatment can be very stressful. In one study, the stress measured with infertility was close to the diagnosis of cancer. Having support from your partner, your family and your world can make the difference in having the tenacity to see the journey through to victory.
Interestingly, many people will stop before they have a chance to find success because it overwhelms them. Therefore, keeping peace in your heart and believing in the end goal is critical.
Meditation and positive attitude can be very powerful, along with love from your people encouraging you.
Here are 10 points, through quotes, to keep you going.
#1: Be Positive
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
“Promise me you’ll always remember that you’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you know.”
Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh
#3: Beat The Odds
“Football is a fertility festival. Eleven sperm trying to get into the egg. I feel sorry for the goalkeeper.”
#4: Know Thy Self
“When you’re feeling your worst, that’s when you get to know yourself the best.”
#5: Don’t Give Up
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. “
#6: See the Beauty
“Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”
#7: Keep It Simple
“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.”
#8: Keep the Flame of Hope Alive
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
#9: Give It Your All
“You have 3 choices: Give in, Give up, or Give it all you’ve got.”

in achieving your dreams.
