Adversity or misfortune is an important part of our lives and we need to accept that it is inevitable. All of us want to have an easy ride but unfortunately, we cannot have that. Each one of us has to face some adverse situations at some point in time. And I think that we just cannot evolve or develop without facing adversity as it brings out the innovative and creative person in us. Adversity fuels innovation.
All of us have heard people saying “Trust yourself”, but do we actually trust ourselves during adverse times? Well, sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t. And when we do, we get success and happiness, and when we don’t we face failure. The basic idea which we all need to understand is, start trusting yourselves in every situation. Instead of panicking and doubting our worth, we should start thinking of the solutions for how to resolve the problems and work on them. Controlling situations is not in our hands but controlling our minds definitely is. It is absolutely up to us how we handle our obstacles and whether we decide to bring out the best or worst in us.

Having a strong will is important, once we decide not to give up, we can solve all the problems innovatively.
Therefore, stop running away from adverse situations and start facing them confidently.
