PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!!Adversity can be turned into an advantage in life. Adversity is merely an event and is not thefinal act. You can take the difficult situation you are facing and use it as a tool to create agreat opportunity.Many people throughout history have turned their difficult situations into advantages. Thinkabout some of these examples. Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he was successful. John Bunyan wrote "Pilgrims Progress" while he was imprisoned for his religious views. Winston Churchill went through a lifetime of failures and difficulties. Yet, he perse- vered and became Prime Minister of England at the age of 62.Be thankful for the difficulties you are experiencing. They may be the open door that leadsyou to a great future. Choose to find the good thing waiting in the midst of your adversity. Letyour difficult situation be the tool that carves out a better tomorrow than what you are experi-encing today!
