College basketball coach, Tony Bennett once said, “If you use adversity right, it will buy you a ticket to a place you couldn’t have gone any other way!”

What does it mean to use adversity right?

It means to use it to build resilience.

To not shy away from opportunities to test yourself.

To learn from adverse experiences.

To understand what true optimism and hope looks like.

To get better and better and better.

Because in a place of comfort, you can’t get that.

When you don’t experience setbacks or failure, you can’t learn as much.

So be grateful for the adversity in your life.

Buy that ticket to greatness.
