OVERCOMING ADVERSITY

Merriam-Webster defines adversity as a difficult situation, condition, misfortune or tragedy. We’re all going to face adversity in life and business.  It’s how we face and overcome adversity that matters. Are we going to let adversity beat us and hold us back? Or are we going to face adversity and overcome it? Adversity, not success, makes us stronger. We learn from adversity, not success. Adversity is the foundation for success.
