Inspiring Quotes of the Week...

Adversity

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Adversity
“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” ~ Helen Keller
It all starts from within, from what we decide to focus on... the pain or the hope, the fear or the love, the chaos or the harmony. As the proverb says, "Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors."
“Difficulties are things that show a person who they are.” ~ Epictetus
Adversity introduces a man to himself. When things aren't easy or obvious, your motivation is tested and you find out if you're capable of understanding the situation and coming up with a creative solution. As Samuel Smiles said, "He that never made a mistake never made a discovery."
“If you watch how nature deals with adversity, continually renewing itself, you can't help but learn.” ~ Bernie Siegel
And Bernard M. Baruch: “The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them.”
Adversity
“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
A sincere sense of responsibility is what separates the achiever and the leader from the also rans. Sometimes you have to be forceful, to do what's necessary. It’s not about abusing situations but about knowing when to push the boundaries, taking responsibility for a decision, to go ahead and do what you feel is right. Your integrity depends on that. If it turns out you were wrong, then apologize.
“Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
As Harry Golden says, "The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work." You will meet failure and disappointment, these are inevitable steps on the ladder towards where you're going. Don't take it personally. These are an opportunity to build character, to pick yourself up and find a better way. Just accept, and learn, grow and adapt, open your mind, and focus again on the vision that inspires your heart. As Eric Hoffer remarks, "It is often the failure who is the pioneer in new lands, new undertakings, and new forms of expression."
“In prosperity our friends know us - in adversity, we know our friends.” ~ John Churton Collins
As Rona Barrett said, "The healthy and strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it." Then we know our friends. Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of a greater benefit. A bend in the road is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn. If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere interesting.

Scale the Wall: The Power of Optimism - by Karla Brandau

Optimism is dependent on your view of adversity and the thoughts and feelings you internalize when experiencing a difficulty. How you think and feel changes what you actually do. The good news is this: if if optimism and the ability to scale the wall is not one of your natural talents (meaning that adversity creates the adrenaline to climb the wall), it can be learned.
