Where Adversity Happens

Have you been watching the NBA playoffs? The remaining teams are the most versatile and have made the best adjustments so far.
In life it's no different...
Everyone deals with adversity, some greater than others. It's how you respond to it that determines how far you will go in life.
When things don't go your way, you have a choice: play the victim or play the victor. You don't always choose what happens to you, but you always choose how you respond to it.
During the NBA playoffs, the mentally strongest teams make it the furthest. Coaches and players have to make adjustments or their teams lose. Despite individual talent, it's the teams that get knocked down, but get back up fighting who prevail.
Adversity is a test of your true character. What's inside comes out in the heat of the moment. Life won't get easier, but how you deal with it should. A true sign of maturity is effectively managing your emotions.
When things aren't going your way, how do you deal with adversity?


  1. No one can become successful without failure. So, the important thing is not to worry too much about why something happens.
