“The gem cannot be polished without friction nor the child of God cleansed without adversity”
Wow.. life is a adventure,a roller coaster ride of ups and downs,twist and turns.it has moments of pure elation and times of dispair.Sometimes the despair we suffer is due to the decisions that we’ve made and at times situations are out of our control.A failing economy,loss of employment,problems in a marriage.It’s all part of life.No one promised it would be easy,but without a doubt this is a journey worth taking.The quailty of our lives is directly related to and determined by how we master art of “Rolling with the Punches” or dealing with adverse situations.Adversity is inevitable and you may not like this;but it is absolutely necessary.Why,Because adversity is the catalyst for great achievement,spritual and mental growth,building up of character and gaining faith and determination that keeps us pushing forward towards achieving the desires of our hearts.
The diamonds is one of our precious gems.Its name,derived from ancient Greek;means unbreakable.It is formed form the tremendous pressure and heat of the earth that transforms carbon into something new.Wow… If you want to become greater,unbreakable and something new,then you too must be capable of enduring pressure of life.To be all that you need and desire to be,you must first go through some things.With each disappointment,resistance that we overcome,we are rewarded.Our reward comes in the form of greater strength.When you workout at Bally’s or LA Fitness you do it to strengthen and tone your muscles,be healthier.The more reisistance ,the harder you work,the stonger or more toned the muscles become.Adversity in some ways is our fitness spa for the inner self.That intangible you;mind and spirit.The more resistance that is applied,the harder the worker,the stronger your inner self becomes.
Adversity can also serve as a detour to greater path.Right out of collage,I was hired as an Assistant Food service Director.I was absolutely thrilled.loved my job,worked hard and strived for excellence.I envisioned myself working my way up the ranks of that company and spending my entire career there.Within months of being hired I was fired and suffice it to say I was devestated.However,that event changed my career path and set me on an incredible journey to becoming the owner of two Mcdonald restaurants at the age of 35.Today I travel the world as a success/life coach.I repeat,adversity is absolutely necessary!
From this day forward you must change the way you view the difficultiest and adversites in your life.They are there to teach you,strengthen you and prepare you for the greater good that is in store.Recognize the opportunity to roll up your sleeves,face your challenges and overcome.
