“We get stronger when we test ourselves. Adversity can make us better. We must be challenged to improve, and adversity is the challenger.”
~ John Wooden
Are you wishing for a life free of adversity or a better life?
Try to eliminate adversity from your life & you’ll spend a lifetime trying – and won’t succeed. Adversity will always be with us.
Actually, adversity is one of your biggest helpers…if you let it be. Don’t try to go around adversity. Go through it & it can help you.
The path to a better life is through adversity.
By shifting your perspective, you can transform adversity into one of your biggest allies. Adversity can light the way improvement, learning & growth.
As Debbie Ford points out in The Dark Side of the Light Chasers:
“All negative events are blessings in disguise.”
I’ve found this to be very true in my life. The key is to look for the good within the adversity. Most times our reaction to adversity is to instantly label it as “bad” & then do everything in our power to avoid it or deny that it is even happening.
Instead, accept adversity & look at it closely. By doing so you’ll discover it can help you in significant & profound ways.
Have you found ways to remember to look for the good within adversity?
