Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Adversity Will Strengthen Us

Adversity Will Strengthen Us

  

Motivational Power Quote

 

 Adversity Will Strengthen Us

"All the adversity I've had in my life,

has strengthened me.

You may not realize when it happens,

but a kick in the teeth may be

the best thing in the world for you."

Walt Disney, visionary  

   

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

Adversity will strengthen us  

When faced with adversity we have a choice, a choice of standing our ground and to do our very best to overcome the adversity. Or we can choose to give into the adversity and give up.  

In standing firm against the adversity we have made the choice to stay in control of our future and to control the outcome. In standing firm in the face of adversity we develop of inner strength.   

We can choose to find solutions and work though the adversity we grow as a person and stretch our limits.  

In the middle of adversity we will find the strength to continue to move forward and as we move forward we will find our greatest opportunities and grow into greater success.  

Adversity will strengthen us by standing firm and facing the adversity. We may bend at the weight of the adversity and we will find the strength and grow stronger.

Yes, I agree with you Lou, adversity does make us stronger and more grateful/thankful for all we do have.

Agree with you also, the harder we have to work for what we attain, the stronger we become in the process.

I work best when under pressure.  Adversity creates that pressure at times.  It's not pleasant but can be a good thing. 

Live long and prosper.. :)

Lou - It is only when we are faced with adversity that we know who we truly are - and then have the opportunity to become that which we want to be.  As for the kick in the teeth ... not sure it's covered in my dental plan!

Lou - seems true for me, at least. (though I am trying to be strong...and doing my best to 'float')

I should attribute my mental strength to your post to an extent. Thanks.

Adversity is a great teacher if we take the time to learn it's lessons. Thank you!

Adversity is the obstacle that creates opportunity. As for the kick in the teeth, not so sure! Enjoy the day!

Lou, I think some adversity gives some the needed push they need to spur them into action. Often we wonder why it's happening when it does, but in time, we find out exactly why.

Lou, this is a challenge for me right now as I working to let go and allow myself to be directed out of a dark hole.  To realize, in the moment that what you feel you are suffering is a great teacer takes a leap of faith that I am willing to have today.

Like the saying says:  If it doesn't kill us, it will make us stronger!

I can't imagine anyone ever succeeding without facing adversity and moving forward. It does make us think sometimes or even modify a route.
