Struggle produce a better you in life

Life from birth to death is literally an unbroken chain of ever-increasing, unavoidable struggle.

Struggle is a clever device through which Nature compels humanity to develop, expand and progress.  The education we receive from the struggles we face is cumulative.  We get it a little at a time from every experience we encounter.

Meet struggle and master it, says Nature and you shall have the strength and wisdom sufficient for all your needs.  The strongest trees in the forest aren't those most protected, they are those that must struggle against the elements and other trees and surmount them to survive.

My grandfather was a wagon maker.  In clearing his land for crops, he always left a few oak trees standing in the open fields where they were exposed to the full force of the blazing sun and blasts of wind.

The trees that strained against Nature were far stronger and tougher than the protected oaks deep in the forest.  It was timber from the trees that had struggled that he used for the wagon wheels, bending them into arc-shaped segments, without fear that they would break.  Because they had struggled, they had grown strong enough to bear the heaviest loads.

Struggle forces us to move when we would otherwise stand still.  And it leads us eventually to the full realization that success comes only through struggle.  Nothing worthwhile in life is ever achieved without a struggle.

Once we understand the broad purpose of life, we become reconciled to the circumstances that force us to struggle.  As a result, we accept struggle for what it is - opportunity.
