Does it ever seem like you have more adversity in your life than other people do?
As if everyone around you is having an easier time of things than you are?
You begin to feel sorry for yourself and think, “Why does this stuff always happen to ME?”
It seems as if even though you continue to endure punch after punch and still keep your feet under you – life always has another crushing body blow in store for you.
Every time you take yet another beating, persevere and turn a corner… someone is waiting around that corner ready to crack you over the head again with a sock full of pennies.
We’ve all been there. Myself included. And it’s awful.
When you’re hit over and over again with these challenges, it’s easy to let yourself start focusing on everything through a lens of negativity and start to believe that you’re picked on, victimized, or unlucky.
But what if I told you that just the opposite could be true – that you can choose to exploit adversity to your advantage?
