If every day were a good day, there would be no good days, because there wouldn’t be any bad days to compare it with. It’s the bad days that help us appreciate the good days! Sickness helps us appreciate health. Failure helps us appreciate success. Debt helps us appreciate wealth. And the tough times help us appreciate the good times. I’ve also learned that our worst days could become our best days.
Adversity is the seedbed of opportunity. Bad circumstances have a way of bringing the best out of us. Wild lions make valiant warriors just like rough sea make great sailors. Adversity is often a blessing in disguise.
