The Best Success Course One Can Take + #MyPostMonday Link-Up

Have you ever thought that adversity might be the best success course you could ever take? Yes, if you can come out on the other side of adversity, basically alive (actually, the only requirement), you just got yourself one of the best secrets to success ever invented! If you come out of said adversity with greater knowledge, a stronger character, more self-confidence, and self-respect, that's even better! Think about it, if you can come out of adversity with self-respect, don't you think the next goal you want to accomplish might seem just a little easier? Next time I go through something hard, not by my own choice, something that is thrust upon me, I will look at it in the face and say, go ahead, make my day! Make my life! 'Cause when I get through this, that's just another notch in my life experience belt. Too bad they don't list trials that we pass through on resumes, right along with degrees held, certifications, courses, and public service. It would look something like this (by the way, this isn't my own list of trials, although I do have an impressive one of my own!):
  • Survived cancer in 1999, went through chemo, radiation. 
  • Lost home due to medical bills.
  • Went through extreme discrimination in job, was passed over for promotion, but managed to survive and am still working.
  • Home business failed, but will know what to look for next time in a home business.
  • Had to play nice to ex for sake of the children. Was tough but did it.   
What we have gone through, our life's trials, how we have handled them, and how we have climbed and clawed back speaks more than a little piece of paper in a frame. It defines our core, our values, and the reason we exist. So, why pay for success seminars when you have them for free, custom-made just for you, and built right into your own life?

 Today is "My Post Monday!" It's all about original content from bloggers who care to share what is on their minds--from Crafts to Camping, Wellness to Wealth, Fashion to Food, and whatever else is on the brain!  I, for one, love to explore other sites for original, non-sponsored posts, tips, pictures and videos! Sponsored posts are great and I appreciate the information from well-written and authentic sponsored posts, I write them myself! But this linky is for non-sponsored posts because they are all about what the writer thinks, believes, and knows. It's not about a specific brand and what it compensates the blogger to promote! If I happen to find a great original, non-sponsored post, I'll link it up and share it with you here and on Twitter via the #MyPostMonday hashtag!  It's like being featured!  I can miss some amazing posts, but I don't want to!  So, in addition, if you'd like to link up yourself, you can do that too!  I'll visit your site, comment, promote and publicize! Remember, any link to your posts helps your blog numbers increase! (Affiliate links OK)
