British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, said, “There is no education like adversity.” Wow, is that ever true. Every adversity and challenge I have encountered in my life has given me a great education. I learned what to do and what not to do … what worked and what did not work … who was with me and who was against me.

Overcoming adversity involves knowing exactly what it is that you’re trying to accomplish and staying with it until the task is done. I like what writer and anthropologist, Ralph Blum, said about adversity, “Nothing is predestined; the obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.”

The American Heritage Dictionary defines attitude as ‘a state of mind or feeling with regard to some matter’. Attitude for me is defined in one word — life. Your attitude makes an incredible difference in your life and impacts everything you do. Tap into the power of your attitude to transform into positive action, because it can be a powerful tool. Yes, attitude is everything.

A bad attitude can be a poison that cripples your ability to fulfill your potential. Your attitude dictates whether you are living life or life is living you. Your attitude dictates whether you are on the way or in the way. See your challenges as opportunities to learn and see the good in every bad situation.

Grow an attitude at Liberty National Life Insurance Company that believes you will reach your goals. The next time you’re faced with a difficult challenge, focus on staying positive. Your setbacks can be setups for even greater opportunities. Like you give your car a tune up, give yourself an attitude tune up to make sure your attitude is positive and powerful.

Climb higher with a more positive attitude and live your best life.

How do you overcome adversity?
