The Beauty of Challenges

The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trial. – Confucius

If everything is easy, nothing is valued.

If nothing is valued, life has little meaning.

A life without meaning is the greatest misery a human can know.

Work hard.

Get your hands dirty.

Fail,* regularly.

Fall down and get back up.

Exhaust your resources and replenish them.

Work hard and get stronger.

* There is no such thing as “failure;” every action produces a result. Results can be learned from, and grown from.
