You are wiser than most, once you realize that adversity is never the permanent condition of man. And yet this wisdom alone is not sufficient. Adversity and failure can destroy you while you wait patiently for your fortune to change. Deal with them in only one way.

Welcome them both, with open arms!

Since this injunction goes against all logic or reason, it is the most difficult to understand or master.

Let the tears you shed, over your misfortunes, cleanse thine eyes so that ye might see the truth. Realize that he who wrestles with you always strengthens your nerves and sharpens your skills. Your antagonist is always, in the end, your best helper.

Adversity is the rain in your life, cold, comfortless, and unfriendly. Yet from that season are born the lily, the rose, the date, and the pomegranate. Who can tell what great things you will bring forth after you have been parched by the heat of tribulation and drenched by the rains of affliction? Even the desert bloom after a storm.

Adversity is also your greatest teacher. You will learn little from your victories but when you are pushed, tormented, and defeated you will acquire great knowledge, for only then will you become acquainted with your true self since you are free, at last, from those flatter thee. And who are your friends? When adversity engulfs you is the best time to count them.

Remind thyself, in the darkest moments, that every failure is only a step toward success, every detection of what is false directs you toward what is true, every trial exhausts some tempting form of error, and every adversity will only hide, for a time, your path to peace and fulfillment.

I just want to share this wonderful excerpt from Og Mandino's The Greatest Success in the World And just to remind myself that whatever situation, emotion, state of mind, I am currently in for the past 9-10 days is not permanent. *le sigh*
