Man oh man, I know about this #MondayMotivation quote from author Helen Keller all too well. It’s a tough one to swallow, but it’s one we all need to read.
Building your character, strength, and success doesn’t come easy in the least. You may think that it comes from your wins, but, most of the time, it comes from your rough times. Your trials are what truly strengthens you for what’s ahead and helps to teach you and allow you to grow. You may be down for a while. You may have to cry some days. However, your trials and hard times help to build up humility, perseverance and endurance for the road ahead (victories AND trials).
I wouldn’t have been able to handle some of the problems that came my way recently if not for previous trials. It’s hard when you’re going through them, but, in the long run, that’s how you develop your mental toughness and muscle for the future.
