    If you let it be.

    It gives you opportunity to figure work arounds.

    It causes you to think outside of the box.

    It makes you wheel and deal.

    It changes you as a person.

    Coal becomes diamond with the proper pressure and us, as human beings, need that pressure to become diamonds.

    Too often we push off that pressure and do not benefit from it when the actual benefit would be to embrace the pressure, deal with it and take advantage of the life changing benefits. I'll not share details but that has been HUGE in my life lately.

    Pressure/Pain/Problems = Opportunity.

    Many see Pressure/Pain/Opportunity = Hassle.

    Allow the coal to change you for the better and not for the worse as it is entirely your choice.

    It's the times like that which allow us to be the most productive and/or creative simply because most of the time we have to.

    But it's in those times that one needs to decide that they should get on the fixing part instead of dwelling in self-pity.

    After some recent events, I am wired to make things works no matter what.

    I am true believer that in order to be happy in life you have had to face some adversity at some point. How can one appreciate the highs of life without facing the lows. It can make or break you but in the end you hold the key to unlocking your way out.

    I think adversity is over rated you have these abilities in you. But maybe I just have had all the adversity I can stand for a life time

    Happiness is good but it keeps you kind of shallow.Pain and adversity give you depth,maturity and growth.Always look for the silver lining.

    Good post,BTB

    I second the OP.

    Each and every time one of my sites gets de-indexed, accounts deleted, blacklisted, banned and all of that jazz that we've become too damn familiar with here on BHW, I've have not only learned what I did wrong and affected me in order to correct and improve it, but one way or another, my imagination worked efficiently enough to discover/imagine/learn a new method based on the flawed past one that allows me to scale things ups x100 times.

    It obvious that we have all capabilities and capacities inside of us, I don't doubt that, but you just can't get to know your true self and how strong you really are if you don't put yourself out there and, not only, face your Demons, but go and look for them in order to become stronger.

    Adversity can be, at times, all that you need in order to succeed if you can take the pain.

    I think all the idiots who are currently trying to make money with negative SEO lately should read this post. So many people spend all their time figuring out how to damage their competition, they would do much better looking at their own business and making improvements instead.

    One more believer in these principles here too. Good things don't come easy.

    Thank you.

    Sounds nice and is good when you persevere but some adversities is just beyond your capabilities to overcome and will leave you beat and tapped beyond belief. I.E. People get evicted everyday, People die from starvation everyday, and I am sure if they could have overcome and persevere through that they will.

    Adversity builds character, it just will you like the person you become.
