Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Adversity Makes Us Stronger

Adversity Makes Us Stronger



Motivational Power Quote


Adversity Makes Us Stronger


"Adversity is another way

to measure the greatness of individuals.

I never had a crisis that didn't

make me stronger."

Lou Holtz, football coach


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Adversity makes us stronger.   

Standing tall when the wind is at our back isn't the measure of an individual.  

A person will be measured in the time of their adversity; as they face the head winds of difficulty.   

We become stronger when we can face our adversity with a positive outlook, look for solutions and successful work our way out of adversity.

What's that old saying?  What doesn't kill you will make you stronger?

Adversity, is all in the way you handle it. Good or bad it's only a word! I prefer the word challenge...
Wishing you a great holiday,

When those tough times come, as hard as they are, we are wiser and stronger for them.

Lou, It is true that adversity makes up stronger.   What's the saying, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

Got to love adversity!  Maybe not in the moment, but when you look back and realize how it helped mold and shape you into who you are today.  Have a great week!

Indeed.  Some show extraordinary strength.  Will.  Achievement.  Success.  Fortunately many examples.  In the past, currently and still to come.
