The most valuable experiences are often the most difficult experiences. The biggest challenges bring out the best in you, and compel you to make your best even better.
Difficult situations are not much fun. Yet by working your way through them, you create great strength and value.
Even when your hard work is not fully appreciated or immediately rewarded, it still brings important value to your life. The experience of dealing with challenge can produce a lifetime of beneficial dividends.
When you know you have done it in the past, you also know you can do it again. That is the essence of true confidence.
The difficult experiences give you the opportunity to practice persistence. And persistence is a quality that is always in demand.
Though your efforts may not pay off immediately, they will pay off. Persist, and know that you are growing stronger and stronger.
