How can someone gain strength from adversity in order to thrive? How can you make your own luck? Well, I personally find it hard to believe in fate or karma, on the contrary, I think that the onus and thrill of finding opportunities falls squarely on us, not on the “system”. And it’s imperative to be very intentional and strategic to seek every opportunity that advances you to your objective. Life is not a ladder that we climb from one predictable rung to the next, but rather a rocky cliff where we are all free-climbing. There’s no safe path to follow, we can only depend on our own intuition, ingenuity, and determination to rise to the top. Concern yourself with your goal, develop the habit of doing your best at all times and under all circumstances and focus on only those things germane to the issue at hand.
