Don’t Go Through It — Grow Through It

Most of the time, you have to pick yourself up.

Life is full of ups and downs. The moment you step out of your parents’ house, you’ll realise that the world is not so kind. Sometimes it’s because we lack skills or talent; other times, it’s the timing or situation.

The brick walls

There’s a quote I really like from a book called The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch:

How to beat the wall

To overcome hardship, you need to have grit and resilience. Grit is the ability to finish what you started. Resilience is the ability to come back after a setback. In a sense, if you are resilient, grit comes naturally. Because you’ll always overcome any setbacks. Thus, you’ll always finish what you started.

Grow through it

Every setback will always be challenging initially, but you’ll also grow through it once you go through it.
