I was out with a friend earlier and was reminded of a universal truth.
“That’s life. You’ve gotta have the door slammed in your face a few times.”
In another moment with a president of a marketing firm, he was sharing the times in his career he was most proud of. Two of the four experiences he shared were door-slamming moments when he was dealt a poor hand and had to face adversity.
It’s true that some of the positive experiences we have have a positive influence on us. More often than not, though, it’s the negative experiences that have the most positive impact.
Stay Positive & Keep Knocking
