Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Adversity

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Fiasco – Failure, defeat.  In spite of the numerous fiasco’s, Tom overcame adversity and succeeded in his mission.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

Carrey revealed to James Lipton on “Inside the Actor’s Studio” that when he was 15, he had to drop out of school to support his family. His father was an unemployed musician and as the family went from “lower middle class to poor,” they eventually had to start living in a van.  Carrey didn’t let this stop him from achieving his dream of becoming a comedian: He went from having his dad drive him to comedy clubs in Toronto to starring in mega-blockbusters and being known as one of the best comedic actors of an era.

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

Success requires overcoming adversity. Obstacles are there for a reason. They challenge us and they make us better. Every obstacle you overcome in life is a mini-success event. When you face adversity, you gain new skills and experiences that will help you more easily overcome adversity in the future.
