Henry Thomas Hamblin said, “Adversity comes to all, but if it is not met in the right manner even failure can be made the stepping-stone to success.” If you manage your adversity well, you can use it as a stepping-stone to your success.

You cannot live your life without adversity. But you can manage it well. You can use it to get to the next level. When adversity strikes, do not abandon your goals. All you have to do is to listen to what life is trying to tell you. Do not abandon adversity. Learn from it. It is there to teach you something. It is there to strengthen your muscles. Adversity is there to stop you from doing the wrong thing. Adversity is there to prepare you for what is to come. According to Napoleon Hill, “Every adversity brings with it the seed of an equivalent advantage.” If you want to grow, you must learn from adversity. If you want to conquer your fears, you must learn from adversity. If you want to become the person you were created to be, you must learn from adversity. Do not make adversity your enemy. Make it your friend. When you do that, you can learn from it.

Whether you like it or not, whether you want to hear it or not, your future is dependent upon your ability to deal with your adversity. When you manage your problems well, your future is filled with possibilities. When you manage your issues well, you expand your life.

Expand your life through adversity. We grow when we manage our problems. We reduce when we don’t. Don’t be scared. Do not let fear stop you from managing your problems well. If you don’t manage your problems well, they will manage you. Do not do that if you want to grow.

If you want to grow your character, you must face adversity. It is not even enough to face it. You must conquer it. If you want to grow your inner muscles, you must conquer your problems. If you want to reach your nobility, you must overcome adversity. You can do it. You have done it before. Just connect yourself with your inner master to help you out, to instruct you, to direct you.

You can grow yourself. You can expand your life. You can expand your world. To do that, you must face your problems. You must overcome challenges. You must overcome yourself. You must do the impossible. You must think the unthinkable. You must defeat your inner monster. Life is not cheap. It is tough. But you are tougher. You are stronger, bigger. Every person is in charge of his life. You are responsible for handling your adversity. Handle it yourself. If you do it well, you will enjoy it.

The Golden Opportunity You Are Seeking Is In Yourself Alone

“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.”- Orison Swett Marden

There are opportunities everywhere. Your opportunity is not in your environment. It is not in your house. It is not in your “luck or chance.” The life you are seeking, the growth you are seeking, the happiness you are seeking, the love you are seeking, the togetherness you are seeking is in you. It is in your soul. It is in your suffering. It is in the dark.

When you listen to your suffering, you can learn a lot from it. The Scripture says, “And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character and hope.”

The opportunity you are looking for is not in your environment. It is in your suffering. It is in your character. It is in hope. So whenever you are faced with problems, you should be happy for facing them. Instead of running away from your problems, why not use the opportunity to connect with yourself, to bring out the best in yourself, to love yourself even more. Why not? What are you waiting for?

Robert Collier was right when he said, “In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.” Whatever you are going through, it is not here to stop you from reaching your goals. Do not ignore your suffering. It has a lot to teach you. All you need to do is to just make room for it to happen. It is your responsibility to do it for yourself, for your future. Do not limit your life. You have a goal to achieve. You have your life to live. And to do that, you need to leave your safe zone. You need to challenge yourself. The only way to get your opportunity is to make sure that your feelings about your opportunity never defeat you. Because if you allow your emotions to control you, you miss your golden opportunity. Do not miss it.
