The School of Hard Knocks

 

The School of Hard Knocks

“Most people once they graduate from the school of

hard knocks, automatically enroll in the

university of adversity.”

Peter McWilliams, 1949 – 2000, Writer

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

The school of hard knocks

 

In most schools when you graduate you’ll receive a diploma. When you graduate from the school of hard knock . . . . You will have your bumps and bruises . . . . and the life experiences to make you a stronger person.

 

No school can prepare you for the future the way that the school of hard knocks can. It will prepare you . . . . to get up after you have been knocked down . . . . and to successful deal with your challenges.

 

The admission to the school of hard knocks can be high . . . . but the life lessons become invaluable in pursuing your goals.

 

Hard knocks happen when you least expect them . . . . and you will be graded on how we respond to them.

 

Attending the school of hard knocks may not be pleasant . . . . but you can choose when you graduate . . . .  and how you apply the life lessons that you have learned.
