A combination of recent events and a conversation with friends has had me thinking consistently thinking about adversity, and how we each decide to deal with our personal struggles. Bottom line, some of us deal with them better than others. Some dig their feet in, some throw in the towel.
I have been fortunate in my life to be surrounded by mentors. They took the raw material I was born with, and enhanced it in many areas. As a society, I think we would be far better served to embrace this mentality, than the "everyone for themselves" approach that most seem to live by.
You can teach mental toughness.
You can teach people to face and work through adversity, arriving on the other side improved, not destroyed.
Adversity is essential, it is not the enemy
