Sooner or later you'll encounter a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success.
Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis. Close scrutiny will show you that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are.
Indeed, most changes in your life will be due to either "inspiration" or "desperation."
Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.
