Embrace Adversity


I want to encourage each of you to embrace the adversity that you encounter in your daily life. Why? Because it will make you stronger. You will grow from it. You will learn to approach things in life differently than you did before. The greatest people in the world are those that have learned that adversity builds character. Therefore, I challenge you to welcome adversity with open arms knowing that it will change your life for the better if you allow yourself to learn from it. 

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” 
― Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross
