Do you learn from adversity?

During times of adversity often our genius will be revealed. We will find that there is another way to live other than 'dog eat dog,'and another worthy goal other than 'bigger,better, more.Let us see this time, then, as a challenge to our ingenuity and an invitation from life to rediscover what is truly important: love, family and friends.

Yes, at this time I'm having financial problems ,but to me having a wonderful family who loves me means more than anything in this world. Money is very important ,but money without love has no value to me.

adversity can mold us. In that way we will know our real self on how we react and respond to it. It can strengthen our belief to God or it can lead away from it. But I think most of adversity made us to be a astong and changed person in our characters.

It's true that genius is truly revealed in times of adversity and need.. necessity ifs the mother of invention... for me " Failures are only failures unless we learn from it..." that's how I live my life..

the appreciation of these learning opportunities is mostly found after the fact. During times of adversity one is so often overpowered by that facts and can only survive.

HI savypat, That is very true, we rarely appreciate such times but as you say, it comes after the fact. Thanks for sharing that thought. Blessings.
