Behind the Curtain

The true man is revealed in difficult times.” – Epictetus – Discourses

We want an easy life most of the time. Heck our species fought just to survive for thousands of years – so now we’re in this place of relevant comfort – wouldn’t we be stupid if we sought out stress? The harsh truth is that difficulties show us who we really are or are capable of being – or in some cases – who we’re not. Whether it’s pressure forming a diamond or steel sharpening steel etc etc – all these metaphors come down to one simple thing – difficulties, hardships, challenges, obstacles – they’re not to be avoided because without them – you’ll never achieve your full potential.
