Troubles? Bring ’em on.

Tuesday August 25, 2009 #149

“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.”

~Horace

Why is it that we so often fail to recognize the gift that adversities give us to grow, mature, challenge conventional wisdom, create new solutions, and more?  There is apparently a common human reaction to adversity to see it only for the immediate pain it causes us.  Break from this paradigm.  If there is a challenge you are facing, and it is likely that you are, face it with the enormous optimism it deserves.  You’re about to find talents you didn’t know you had and reach a new level of competence and exhilarating success.  Troubles?  Bring ‘em on.
