No one likes adversity, but everyone becomes better for having experienced it.
The richest people in the world had to overcome adversity in varying degrees. And for some reason when money is handed down without being earned, the recipient does not enjoy the success and happiness of those who have to work for it.
The two advantages of tough times are they help us discover who we are.
How we overcome obstacles. How we plan to make it better.
But perhaps the biggest benefit in discovering who we are is to find out what we really want. After all, if you’re willing to pay any price to overcome what ails you, you know you really want it.
The other advantage of adversity is we find out who are friends are.
As trite as that sounds, there is no denying that a person who is really for you will shine while you are dealing with the pain and the challenges of adversity.
Adversity is the rehearsal for success and happiness by being the vehicle that introduces us to ourselves and to those around us.
