Tough Times Never Last But Tough People Do – Purav Shah

Darwin stated in his theory of evolution that only the fittest survives. This theory is applicable even in our life. The one who has the power to accept a change can only survive.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said in his speech, “the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenges and controversy.” What we are as human beings, present itself more fully in times of adversity than at times of ease. Anyone can be polite, positive and kind when things are going well. What distinguishes people with an extraordinary character from the rest of us is how they respond when life sends one of its inevitable curves.

A day comes only after a night. Same is the case of success. The more you stretch the further you reach. Success and failure go hand in hand. This very minute somewhere in the world there are parents dealing with the death of their child; this very minute someone has suffered an accident that will devastate their loved ones; this very minute there are people dealing with illness in a hospital bed. Sickness, loss, and disappointment- no one gets through life without experiencing these stuffs. But we humans have the power to choose to rise above our external circumstances. We always have the choice to be strong and positive when things fall apart. We have the right to use our stumbling blocks as stepping stones to our greatest life. I believe this is the truth.

Grace under pressure. That’s what separates leaders from followers. It’s that beautiful quality that inspires others and reflects a well-developed spirit. Whatever be the difficulties the show must go on.

After all. “It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
