Your Trials And Sorrows Develop You

Trouble is the common denominator of living.
It's the great equalizer of life.
Whatever good or bad fortune comes your way,
give it meaning and transform it into something of value.

Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.
All growth means change and change always involves risks,
stepping from the known to the unknown.
All of your growth depends on activity.
It only comes through continuous effort and struggle.
You'll have no development, without effort.

Life chips and pounds you to bring out your possibilities.
She will strip you of wealth, humble your pride,
humiliate your ambition, let you down from the ladder of fame,
and discipline you in a thousand different ways,
if she can develop a little character.
Everything gives way to that.

Wealth is nothing, position is nothing, fame is nothing.
Who you become inside is everything.

What happens to you is not as important
as how you react to what happens.
