Every calamity is a spur and a valuable hint. – Emerson
In every experience there are two questions one can ask:
#1 – Is there a lesson in this?
#2 – What’s the lesson in this?
Just asking Question One is a great step. A wonderful sign of willingness.
Asking Question Two is what all happy, fulfilled and successful people do – consistently (in some form or another).

This is so because there’s no failure, only results.
These results can be seen as unwelcome and negative (and thusly resisted . . . ) or seen as information, as just-ripe wisdom ready to be harvested.
This choice is always available to you: to use what’s happened for your benefit, or not.
