All of us ought to be able to brace ourselves for the predictable challenges and setbacks that crop u every day. If we expect that life won’t be perfect, we’ll be able to avoid that impulse to quit. But even if you are strong like Window N10 enough to persist through the obstacle course of life and work, sometimes you will encounter an adverse event that will completely knock on your back.
Whether it’s financial loss, the loss of respect of your peers or loved ones, or some other traumatic event in your life, these major setbacks leave you doubting yourself and wondering if things can even change for the better again.
Adversity happens too all of us as the goes, and it happens all the time. Some form of major adversity is wither going to be there or it’s lying in wait just around the corner. To ignore adversity is to succumb to the ultimate self-delusion.
But you must recognize that history full of examples of men and women who achieved greatness despite facing hurdles so steep that they easily could have crushed their spirit and left them lying in the dust. Moses was a stutterer, yet he was called on to be the voice of god. Abraham Lincoln overcame a difficult childhood withour Ramos W15 Android Tablet , depression, the death of two sons, and constant ridicule during the ivil war to become arguably our greatest president ever. Helen keller made an impact on the world despite being deaf, dumb, and blind from an early age. Franklin rooseveit had polio.
There are endless examples. These were people who not only look adversity in the face but learned valuable lessons about overcoming difficult circumstances and were able to to move ahead.

I wonder if this is what's slowing down the site?

Can't you get rid of it, Ted?

Moses, Lincoln and Roosevelt...

Now clearly that list omits David Cameron and Ed Milliband. Surely!
