I’ll make this one quite simple. There is no doubt that immediate challenge and adversity faces us multiple times in our lifetime. Unfortunate things happen and years of planning can be thrown out in an instance. All of a sudden, we are forced to play defense, but let me reiterate a point. These challenges, adversities and setbacks can be our greatest weapon if we choose to let them be. By taking affirmative action to grow, learn, and reflect, we will more often than not come out better than we were previously. This doesn’t mean it will be easy, but what’s the alternative? Sit back and make excuses as to why these things are happening to you? No, that won’t do you any good. Use adversity as a weapon to better your life. Let your character be a testament during these times because no matter what, they will happen. There is no better time than now to show how you will emerge from unprecedented and challenging times.
