Your success is not dependent on a life free of challenges.
Every person experiences loss, trials, and pain. Our ability to skillfully surf the rough waters is what brings us reward.
A painful history does not have to stand in the way of your happiness.
The most contented people are those who have used the difficulties of the past to gain perspective and appreciation for what is possible in the present.
Thoughts of the future do not have to bring up worry or fear of the unknown.
When one has developed a strong sense of self and the ability to be flexible in the face of change or challenge, every new day can be met with interest and joy.
