It’s a RARE PERSON who doesn’t get discouraged in the face of adversity. Whether it happens to us or to a friend we’re trying to cheer up, the answer to overcoming adversity lies in one word: PERSEVERANCE.
The value of courage, persistence, and perseverance has rarely been illustrated more convincingly than in the life story of this man. His age appears in the column on the right.
That’s the record of Abraham Lincoln, and today is his birthday.
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try. Failure is not in losing the game, but in not getting off the mat when you are knocked down.
How do you respond to adversity?
Do you get:
-Encouraged or Discouraged?
-Frustrated or Fascinated?
-Turned Off or Turned On?
Today and every day, use adversity to make yourself stronger. Every setback is a setup for a comeback.
Make a difference today!
