Fortitude and resilience in the light of quotes

Marsha is the host of WQWWC

One of the biggest assets humans have been blessed with is adaptability. If things get tough, the resilient nature of humans makes them adapt to the circumstances, bit by bit.

Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.”
― Angela Duckworth

We do start with a lot of enthusiasm but people stop trying when faced with difficulties. We need to endure to succeed.

I love Khalil Gibran and his wisdom. This is such a meaningful statement about how pain and hardship strengthen our souls and give us the courage to go forward in life.

Someone who hasn’t faced failure, cannot succeed. By failing and falling, we learn how to do things right.

One very important thing to remember is not to grow bitter after failure but to be better. If we don’t learn this important distinction, we won’t learn anything at all.

  1. I know all about that adapting. Since I got my trigger thumb I’ve slowly stopped bending it and now rely on my fingers instead and yes I envy chimps their opposable thumbs
