Adversity creates grit


I read Angela Duckworth’s Book on Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. And I saw many success stories. All of it does not come from talent, more of it comes from the handwork they put in to persevere and the passion for the job they are doing. Many of us have struggled with many issues in life. Struggles are there for us to learn what needs to be learned. Whether you are struggling with any difficult things in life, know that you are not alone. There is someone out there who cares for you and loves you. You have meaning in this life. Even though it might seem hard to go through this journey of life, know that “without struggles, there is no progress.”  The first step is most important. Look out the window, imagine it is raining and you are drinking a cup of tea, suddenly all the stresses of this life goes away. Before knowing what your passion is, know that you need to take care of yourself. Even though there is struggles, knowing yourself better and believing that out there there is someone supporting you through this difficult time, you have hope. That even though there are struggles, I will still make progress, because someone out there loves me and cares for me.

It takes time to start believing that you have a meaning and purpose in this life, but trust me, you do have meaning and purpose in this life. As I close this post, I can share to you what I do at night that makes me smile… As I go to bed, I saw out the window, the night sky with stars. And as easy as that, the star gives me hope, because there are so many billions of stars, and that star just shines for us people here to see, and to have hope. That out there, there is someone who loves us. Have hope, and start taking the steps to take care of yourself.
