This Expert Insight Interview Discusses:

  • Learning and adapting Adversity in Life
  • Adversity is an Opportunity.
  • How Can You Grow, Transform, and Evolve in Adversity?

Adversity Brings Opportunity

Adversity gives us the opportunity to discover what we are capable of, to develop our abilities, and to access portions of ourselves that we were unaware existed, as well as inner resources we were unaware we possessed. Adversity can teach us that we can rise above our circumstances and that we are powerful creatures who co-create our lives. We can accept, like a little leaf being dragged down a river, that we shall pass through many times and hardships.

Rather than judging ourselves for what life hands us, we can trust that if life doesn’t dump us on pleasant shores, we will find a way to create what we desire, whether in attitude or actual circumstances.


Adversity is essential for growth and excellence. Simply put, without difficulty, there is no growth. Instead of avoiding difficulties, we should embrace it! It is the source of greatness. When we resist or escape difficulty, we hinder the rich roots of character, learning, resilience, creativity, and conviction from germinating. Adversity has the ability to imprint in our memory, forming our character and influencing our conduct for the future.
