There is no better school than adversity. Every defeat, every loss contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve my performance. Never again will I contribute to my downfall by refusing to face the truth and learn from past mistakes. Experience is the most valuable extract of suffering and yet one of the terrible conditions of this life is that its wisdom cannot be transferred to another. All must attend their own school for each the lessons are different. There is no other way. Adversity is always the first path to truth.BUT you are prepared to learn whatever you need to know in order to improve the condition of your life. Always seek the seed of triumph in every adversity. By the way, I am 64 and look 50. Peace!
