Dear Adversity,

“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.” -Malcolm X

“Plenty and peace bring cowards. Hardness ever of hardiness is mother.” -William Shakespeare

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” -Mike Tyson

Dear Adversity,

Wow. What a surprise. Uh….Thank you so much for dropping by. Welcome. Welcome. Come on in. I wasn’t expecting you but, uh…yeah…Oh cool. You brought gifts. I didn’t get you anything–hope that’s okay–but let’s see here…You brought…

FUEL. Yes! I’ve been looking for motivation, a reason to get out of bed in the morning and work and train. I have it now. Amazing. Thank you.

GROWTH. Seriously?…I get to test my limits? Push past them? Acquire new skills? Get stronger? Wow. Thank you.

EMPATHY. Man oh man…I now have a deeper understanding and feeling for what others are going through. The trials they’re facing. How unbelievably courageous they are. Day in day out. I had no clue before. Okay. Thank you.

KNOWLEDGE. Whatever things I had to learn to overcome you, I can now share those same things with others. Give back. Help. Solve. Thank you.

Again, I so appreciate you being here today adversity. I’ll hope you’ll be staying for a while. Looking forward to our time together.


A Willing Human Being.
