Why Adversity Rocks

Scenario: "Dude, why is life so hard? Ahh!" Imagine Charlie Gubarli. He goes through life like a charm.

  1. He has no money worries. He's a trust fund kid.
  2. He travels to European galleries, monthly.
  3. He eats gourmet, daily.
  4. He spends summers yachting.

Think about that for a second. Now, do this: Name your top 5 movies/books/novels/stories/yadda. Of those, how many reflected the above scenario? Likely: not too many. Probably: none. Your favorites list instead included tales of adversity, persistence, and triumph. Adversity makes our lives interesting. Like a video game, it gives us a challenge. Then, it drives us to chase the sucker down and beat the mutha-@^^%^& into submission. When you look back at your life decades from now, your most treasured experiences won't include moments of tranquility. Instead, it'll involve overcoming obstacles that you once thought were impossible. Adversity gives us life. It gives us a reason for living. "A rich, rewarding life often requires a messy battle with adversity," researchers tell us. MLK, Edison, Newton, Disney, Jordan, Lincoln, Einstein, and Gandhi wouldn't have it any other way.

I have fought the good fight.
