Adversity and success are lovers. They are bedmates. They rely and depend on each other. Adversity pushes you, challenges you, tests you. It makes you better. Adversity is the progenitor of growth. Without adversity you would never grow into the person you need to be in order to be a success.
But adversity often stops people in their tracks. It tests their commitment to their goals and dreams. If your reason for pursuing success is not powerful enough, adversity will derail your pursuit of success. You must have a WHY that drives you every day in the pursuit of your dream. That WHY creates the passion that will carry you through adversity. Your WHY must be very personal and omnipresent. Adversity reveals if your WHY is powerful enough. Adversity is a test.
